ISLAMABAD: Iran is reported to have conveyed its concern to Pakistan over the situation in Yemen and expressed its desire to hold talks on the crisis.

The Iranian proposal for a dialogue on the crisis in Yemen and Pakistan’s likely participation in the Saudi-led coalition against Houthi rebels was made at a meeting between Pakistani Ambassador in Tehran Noor Mohammad Jadmani and a senior Iranian foreign ministry official last week, a Pakistani official disclosed on Monday.

The Iranian foreign ministry had asked the Pakistani envoy to convey Tehran’s concerns over reports about Pakistan’s willingness to join the military coalition cobbled by Saudi Arabia for fighting Houthis.

There were allegations that Houthi rebels were being backed by Iran. But Foreign Office spokesperson Tasneem Aslam had last week dismissed such reports and said there was no available proof of Iranian involvement in Yemen. Also, Pakistan has so far not taken a decision to send troops to Yemen.

During the Tehran meeting, the Iranian side indicated that it was interested in talking to Pakistan on the issue.

According to the source, Tehran had emphasised on a “policy of non-interference” in the Yemeni crisis. The Iranian foreign ministry had also diplomatically cautioned about complications in case of military intervention in Yemen.

Ambassador Jadmani, the source said, had conveyed the Iranian message to the Foreign Office.

Couple that with Saudi asking for our help it seems there will be no trouble moving in to help Saudi. The part where the rebels have entered sovereign Saudi soil in the past is not to be taken lightly. The history of these rebels and their aggressive behaviour points towards a threat to Saudi Arabia and needs to be answered. I wonder how one can ignore the advantages of GCC as an ally.

This is all I have to say. Both Iran and Saudi Arabia need to mature and resolve their disputes through dialogue. In particular, Saudi Arabia needs to put all their differences aside and try to at least give the talks a chance. Both need to stop thinking in terms of their status as the sole superpower of the ME. I know the dispute and mistrust between these two nations runs extremely deep, but there's no other solution. Pakistan should assist both nations in holding a dialogue. Bombing Yemen won't solve anything.

Still people have confusion. while it is simple. they will not disobey the orders from the king.
Pakistan will say it is not but it is already there.

people desires are nothing for the kings. they decide for the people.

Iran offer for talk is for tomorrow and tomorrow pakistan too cannot go to them for talks if not today.

What about the Yemenis calling for Saudi help?
Yemen cannot be left for Houthi's to devour.
'Yemenis' did not ask for Saudi help. The stooge president asked for it.

Last time I checked, it was first Saudis who directly and indirectly attacked Houthis in 2009 and they entered Saudi soil after that.

You guys are trying so hard to justify your support for an invasion.

The same way some people just worship anything KSA does and justify it, I am also entitled to my opinion, am I not? Yes I see it as an illegal invasion to suppress a popular Yemeni movement and to keep their puppet in power.
