Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sent a message to the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, presenting ideas for an initiative to end the war in Yemen, Saudi media reported.
In his letter, Ahmadinejad suggested that the Saudi Crown Prince take up “the formation of a committee that includes a number of internationally trusted personalities concerned with freedom and justice to hold talks with the two opposing parties (in Yemen) with the aim of ending the crisis and bringing peace and friendship,” according to Asharq Al Awsat.
Addressing Prince Mohammad bin Salman, he said: “I am confident that your eminence will respond to the demands of the people of the region and the human community from you, with good reflection on the results of this devastating war, you will do a work that you wil be praised for and pleases God and His Messenger, may God bless him and his family and companions.”
He believed that “humanitarian responsibility imposes on everyone the pursuit of all their energy to put an end to this war and bring peace, friendship and cooperation.”
The former Iranian President also said in his message, of which a copy was sent to the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, that the conflict in Yemen “led to the intensification of competition and hostility, as well as the distance of countries of the region and their peoples from constructive cooperation… It is no secret to anyone that no matter how long this war goes on “You will bear no fruit other than the destruction and killing of innocent people on both sides, and there will be no victory over them. After all, everyone will lose.”
Ahmadinejad added, “I know that the status quo does not satisfy you, and that what happens daily claiming lives of the innocent victims and destroying the infrastructure may disturb and sadden you… and therefore you welcome a just peace. I am fully confident that with your accompanying and constructive cooperation, we can implement effective initiatives that will play a fundamental role in limiting the aggravation of the status quo and ending the war and rivalry.”
