They also discussed efforts to find a political solution to the conflict among Yemeni political groups.
Abdulsalam arrived in the Iranian capital on Saturday and held talks Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
He presented the Iranian top diplomat with a report on the state of affairs in Yemen.
Zarif pointed to a four-step solution he had proposed earlier last week to solve the crisis, underlined the need for an urgent end to the bombardment and concomitant Saudi-imposed siege of Yemen, and facilitation of transfer to the country of direly-needed aid supplies.
Nearly 14,000 Yemenis, mostly women, children and the elderly, have been killed since the onset of Saudi Arabia’s military campaign against the impoverished state.
