Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned Riyadh that if it does not immediately halt its aggression against Yemen, it will be destined to experience the same fate that the Americans had in Iraq and Syria.
"We advise Saudi Arabia to take lesson from the US' fate of military interference in the region and immediately halt its military attacks in Yemen," Amir Abdollahian said on Sunday.
He warned that enemies of Islam are trying to turn Saudi Arabia into a new Libya by engaging the country in a war against Yemen in a bid to weaken the Muslim states.
Amir Abdollahian pointed to the present conditions of Yemen, and said, "Siege of Yemen and blockade on humanitarian aid supplies by the international bodies has no justification by any means."
He also warned that the only result of Saudi Arabia's strategic mistake of attacking Yemen will be the growth of terrorism, reduced power for Muslims and reinvigoration of the Zionist regime of Israel.
"Those contributing to the military attack on Yemen will be held responsible for regional insecurity, while making their country insecure as well," the Iranian deputy foreign minister cautioned.
The Iranian legislature in a statement issued on Sunday strongly deplored the Saudi-led military strikes against Yemen, cautioning that Riyadh is implementing enemies' plots against the worldwide Muslim community.
"We as members of the Iranian parliament support the Yemeni nation's popular uprising and condemn the foreign, specially the Saudi, meddling and military attack and consider it as a clear interference in the Yemeni people's sovereignty in deciding their fate," the statement read by member of the parliament's Presiding Board Zarqam Sadeqi said.
Noting that the Saudi strike against Yemen proved that Riyadh is serving enemies' plots against the Islamic world instead of strengthening unity and being a source of honor for the Muslims, the statement said, "The Saudi regime should know that the fire they have set will backfire and will impose a heavy cost on the Muslim world."
The statement cautioned that the "fake coalition" against Yemen will further complicate the Muslim world and the regional problems, and said the US and the Zionist regime and their allies' support for the Saudi aggression against an independent nation is against the international laws and shows the US and its allies' hypocritical policies once again.
The Iranian lawmakers also blasted the international community for its deadly silence on the Saudi crimes in Yemen.
