The Iranian Majlis speaker is in Egypt since Sunday to attend the meeting of the Amendment of the Review Committee of the Islamic Inter-Parliamentary Union.

As for the alleged assistance of Iran for the al-Houthi Muslims in Yemen, Larijani said, Tehran has absolutely never assisted the al-Houthis.”

The speaker stated that Tehran and San'a enjoyed friendly ties and that Iran would not spare any efforts to help Yemeni officials resolve the ongoing crisis in their country.

“Our Saudi brothers would better not interfere in the issue,” said the speaker.

As for Iran’s strategy regarding the regional and international developments, Larijani said Iran was pursuing the strategy of establishing unity among Muslims.

“We believe that Shiite and Sunni Muslims are brothers,” he said.
