Russia's chief negotiator in the Iranian nuclear talks on Saturday said Moscow hoped that the conflict in Yemen -- where a Saudi-led offensive is under way against Iranian-allied rebels -- would not negatively affect the ongoing six-party talks with Tehran in Switzerland.
"Unfortunately, we are seeing that the tragedy that is happening in this country (Yemen) is having an impact on the atmosphere of the negotiations," Russian deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti news agency.
"We hope that the situation in Yemen will not bring about a change in the position of certain participants."
