Iranian top lawmaker criticized the silence of the international community against the killing of the Yemeni people by Saudi coalition on Sunday.

Iran news: According to Iran Press news agency, chairman of national security and foreign policy commission of Iranian Parliament, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, said that "Saudi's blockade of Yemen has practically prevented the sending of humanitarian aid to the people of the country, which is under severe and critical conditions, therefore, solutions should be considered as soon as possible by governments and international relief agencies."

Falahatpisheh made the remarks in a meeting with International Committee for Red Cross (ICRC) Regional Director for Near and Middle East, Fabrizio Carboni on Sunday in Tehran.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is always ready to cooperate in providing humanitarian assistance or facilitating the activities of relief agencies such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh added.

Referring to the good record of the Islamic Republic of Iran's relations with the International Committee of the Red Cross, Falahatpisheh added: "Because of being in the region of the Middle East and facing many crisis, and the experiences during the eight years of the imposed war, Iran has always been ready for humanitarian assistance, and has collaborated with the International Committee of the Red Cross.
