Iran to keep its embassy open in Yemen
September 14 , 2015
Iran's embassy in Yemen will continue its usual operations, Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said here on Monday.
Iran has no plan to close its mission in the war-stricken Arab state, IRIB TV quoted the minister as saying in response to some Arab media reports that Tehran has recently shut down its embassy in Sanaa.
"Our ambassador (to Yemen) has returned to the country for a few days to undergo some medical treatments," Amir-Abdollahian said. (Source: IANS)
