Ahmadinejad calls for positive Saudi role in Yemen conflict

Iran's president called Saudi Arabia on Wednesday to play a positive role in Yemen's conflict.

"We were expecting that Saudi Arabian officials act like a mentor and make peace between brothers, not that they themselves enter the war and use bombs ... and machineguns against Muslims," Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech.

"If only a small part of the weapons of Saudi Arabia were used in favour of Gaza and against the Zionist regime (Israel), today there would be no sign of the Zionist regime in the region," he said on state television.

Ahmadinejad also said he believed the United States, Britain and Israel were behind the Yemen conflict, aiming to set the whole region on fire in a bid to dominate the Middle East.

"I hope that my Yemeni brothers sit down and talk and negotiate and solve the problems," he said.
