Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian held a meeting with UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths on Tuesday in Tehran.

Speaking in a press conference after his meeting with the Iranian foreign minister, Martin Griffiths expressed hope that the relationship between Iran and the UN will be expanded.

Referring to the situation in Afghanistan, he called on the countries that have committed to sending humanitarian aid to Afghanistan to fulfill their obligations. Griffiths also urged the Taliban to fulfill their responsibilities towards the people of Afghanistan.

He also pointed to the Yemen issue, saying that the important action that can be taken for the Yemeni people, including children, women and men, is establishing peace.
