  1. Iran Submits Yemen Peace Plan to U.N.

    But can Iran be neutral? The Islamic republic has submitted its four-point plan for Yemen, which includes a total ceasefire, humanitarian aid to those whose lives have been devastated, and a new “inclusive” government. Ban Ki-moon has also called for a ceasefire, but many Western diplomats have ignored Iran’s proposal, saying the country is too involved to be a disinterested peace broker. Iran — and the rest of the world — is worried that without some peacemaking, Yemen’s instability will allow terrorist groups to fill the power vacuum.
