Khatibzadeh expressed hope that as the holy month of Ramadan approaches, by prioritizing humanitarian issues and advancing the exchange of prisoners, we will see an end to the conflict and national reconciliation in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia, with the support of the United States, the United Arab Emirates and several other countries, has launched a military invasion of Yemen and a land, sea and air siege since March 2015.

The outbreak of war by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen has so far killed and injured hundreds of thousands of Yemenis and displaced 4 million.

Despite the fact that seven years have passed since the beginning of this all-out aggression, the Yemeni army and popular committees, while defending their nation, have managed to inflict heavy blows on the aggressor coalition and its allies, targeting Saudi and Emirati aggressors deep inside the two countries. Despite their complete siege, they should expand their weapons capabilities, especially missiles and drones, by relying on internal power.
