TEHRAN, May 09 (YPA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Sunday that the Ukraine crisis has a political solution, adding that Iran is against the war in Ukraine as opposed to the war in Yemen, Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported.

This came during a press conference with  his Polish counterpart Zbigniew Rau in the Iranian capital on Sunday.

Amirabdollahian said that Iran and Poland have a long-standing and historical relationship that dates back to 540 years ago, and this is a great asset in the relations between Tehran and Warsaw.

He praised Poland humanitarian role in the Ukraine crisis in recent months, both for the displaced people of Ukraine and on the issue of the immediate transfer of Iranian nationals at the onset of the crisis from different parts of Ukraine to Poland and from there to Iran.

Amirabdollahian called for political negotiations between Ukraine and Russia for a ceasefire and an end to the war as soon as possible.

For his part, the Polish foreign minister said his country believed that “this Ukrainian war stems from violence, noting that based on international law Ukraine will have the right as an independent state to defend its territory.”
