Iran dismisses US, UK allegations over Yemen missiles
(MENAFN) Following the US and UK accusations of Tehran launching missiles against Yemen, Iran has responded in stressing their objective was to setback their "shameful" involvement in the crisis through hitting "false" charges against others.
In a press release, the Iranian Permanent Mission to the UN dismissed the allegations, saying that "the US and UK complicity in Yemen crisis is shameful."
The statement comes in response to comments that came from US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley and UK ambassador to the UN Karen Pierce at a Security Council meeting on Yemen.
Officials from the UK and Britain have "repeated their derogatory allegations about Iran to cover up their own role in the disastrous situation created in Yemen. Iran categorically rejects those allegations as baseless propaganda," the Iranian mission stated.
It continued "the fact is that the war of aggression of Saudi Arabia in Yemen is the main underlying reason for the escalation of the crisis. It is regrettable that Saudi Arabia and its warmonger supporters, as the main party responsible for such a catastrophic humanitarian situation, are trying to cover up their shameful crimes by introducing false charges against others or trying to spread the crisis beyond Yemen's borders."
