Ahmadinejad urges to end Yemen conflict - media
Former president of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has written a letter to Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, inviting him to join hands to end the Yemen war, according to a copy that Ahmadinejad’s office provided to The New York Times.
"The letter by the former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is striking in that Mr. Ahmadinejad wrote it at all," the newspaper writes.
"I know that your excellency is not happy about the current situation of innocent people dying and getting injured every day and infrastructure being damaged. You are upset that regional resources belonging to the people are used for destruction instead of developing peace and prosperity. For these reasons you will welcome a just peace," the letter said.
Ahmadinejad also wrote to the leader of the Houthis, Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, and to the United Nations secretary general, António Guterres. The three letters represent a proposal by Mr. Ahmadinejad to mediate an end to Yemen’s war by creating a committee of international dignitaries.
