Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif highlighted the contrast between the US Congress and government over the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
In a tweet on his account on Wednesday, the top Iranian diplomat said: “Even the US Congress wants to put an end to CENTCOM’s destabilizing activities in Yemen.”
“But petrofinanced #NetanyahuFirsters and their enabler in the White House will continue—with American lives and against US interests—to push for forever wars,” Zarif added.
Earlier on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump vetoed resolution from Congress directing him to end US support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
The Senate had passed a bipartisan resolution on 13 March in a 54-to-46 vote, in a move that was largely seen as a rebuke of Trump’s alliance with the Saudi forces leading war on Yemen. The House voted on the resolution in early April, passing it with 247 votes to 175. But Trump vetoed the resolution.
