Iranian Foreign Minister Condemns US and UK Aggression in West Asia

Iranian Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, has strongly criticized recent acts of aggression against countries in West Asia, issuing a warning to the United States and Britain.

Iran (IMNA) - In a post on his X account on Sunday, Amir-Abdollahian expressed Iran's condemnation of the recent airstrikes conducted by the United States and Britain on Yemen, as well as the deadly strikes carried out by US occupation forces in Iraq and Syria.

During a meeting with British Foreign Secretary David Cameron, Amir-Abdollahian emphasized that the "continuation of war is not a solution." This statement referred to discussions between the two sides that took place on the sidelines of the 54th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, back in January.

“Do not test the anger of the region. We consider the security of Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Palestine (Gaza and the West Bank) to be the security of the region,” the top Iranian diplomat stated.
