Zarif had flown in from Muscat where he held talks on Wednesday night with the spokesman of the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen, Mohammed Abdulsalam. Zarif conveyed to the Houthi official Tehran’s support of a ceasefire and return to the negotiations table to resolve the destructive war in Yemen.
