Iran lashed out at the United States and the United Kingdom for covering war crimes committed by Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
Commenting on the ways to solve the crisis in Yemen, Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Iranian Foreign Minister, has once again reiterated Iran’s stance on the ceasefire as well as emphasizing that “dialogue and inclusive government” were the only way to halt hostilities.
Zarif has called the recent anti-Tehran resolution proposed by the US and the UK a failed try to hide their implication in the Yemeni war.
His remarks came a day after Russia vetoed a UK-drafted resolution at the UN Security Council, urging for “additional measures” against Tehran over the alleged breach of the 2015 arms embargo on Yemen, having supplied weapons and military equipment to the Houthi revolutionaries.
At the same time, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi stated that the UK and the US were responsible for the ongoing military aggression against Yemen.
“The performance of the US and Britain over the past three years at the [United Nations] Security Council has been unconstructive and in line with giving legitimacy to the aggressors against Yemen,” Qassemi said on February 27.
He proceeded to say that the aforementioned countries had been using the mechanisms of the UNSC to cover up the “war crimes” committed by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen.
