TEHRAN, Aug 14: Iran's supreme leader has held talks with a senior Yemeni rebel official just days after the long-running intervention against the rebels by its regional foes Saudi Arabia and the UAE suffered a major setback.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei hosted Houthi rebel spokesman Mohammed Abdul Salam at his Tehran residence late Tuesday after southern separatists backed by the United Arab Emirates seized Yemen's second city Aden on Saturday. Khamenei renewed his support for the rebels, who control the Yemeni capital Sanaa and much of the north, and accused Iran's foes of a "plot" to partition the country.
"I declare my support for the mujahidah (struggle) of Yemen," he said in a statement issued after the talks. "Saudi and UAE and their supporters have committed major crimes in Yemen.
Khamenei called for talks to stop Yemen being divided.    -AFP
