According to ambassador, Iran never sent weapons to Yemen
(MENAFN) Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations Amir Saeid Iravani has responded to a new U.S. allegation that Iran sent arms to one of the parties engaged in the Yemen war.
In letter dated January 23 to the leader of the United Nations Security Council, Iravani announced, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has never transferred weapons to Yemen in violation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions. Iran has always upheld its international obligations and any claim to the contrary is totally rejected.”
He also said, “As has been stated numerous times, this unproven claim made by the US and certain states is based on false information and serves only to advance their political interests in the Yemen conflict. Therefore, the claim that Iran transferred weapons to one of the parties involved in the Yemeni conflict is nothing more than a cynical attempt by the US to cover up its repugnant interference in the Yemen crisis which resulted in a humanitarian blockade and unspeakable suffering for the Yemeni people. Furthermore, this unfounded claim will not deviate from the fact that the US and its allies are prolonging the conflict by exporting and providing massive weapons and military support to the region”.
