TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iran categorically rejected Saudi claims on Iran's intervention in Yemen.

"The Saudi official is speaking of intervention in Yemen whereas military of the country has violated the internationally-accepted rules and regulations targeting Yemeni infrastructures and residential units and killed hundreds of defenseless children and women in Yemen. It refuses to hear international legitimate demands for stopping war on a defenseless nation and country," said Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham referring to Saudi Foreign Minister Saud bin Faisal's recent remarks.

She reiterated that Iran calls for ending military operation against Yemen and sending human aid including drug and foodstuff to the country urgently.

Afkham said that continuous military attacks against Yemen not only do not solve the issue, but also make it more complicated.

"A political approach and Yemeni-Yemeni talks to be attended by all parties, groups and political and social streams as well as formation of national unity government is the only way to settle the crisis and prevent killing of innocent people."
