Tehran, Aug 18 (IANS) Yemen''s Houthi movement and diplomats of a number of European countries recently held a meeting in the Iranian capital.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the movement and Iran, as well as ambassadors of Britain, France, Germany, and Italy to Tehran on Saturday, Xinhua reported.

During the meeting, the participants discussed Yemen''s ongoing crisis and emphasized that the conflictual situation in Yemen should only be settled through political approaches.

They urged immediate delivery of humanitarian aid to the Yemeni people, according to the report.

The participants also called for full implementation of an agreement reached in the Swedish capital of Stockholm in 2018, between representatives from the movement and the exiled Yemeni government of Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, about the UN-mediated truce.

Iran-allied Houthis in Yemen are in bloody conflict with the Saudi-led Arab military coalition, which supports the exiled Yemeni government for more than four years.

Iran has accused the Saudi-led coalition of "plots" to split Yemen.

On Tuesday, Iran''s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, who have committed "grave crimes" in Yemen, are seeking to "disintegrate" Yemen.
