UAE calls for action against Iran after United Nations and USA reports

Haley said the recovered missile fragments came from a weapon that targeted the main airport in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.

While #Iran has been calling for ceasefire, aid and dialogue in #Yemen from day 1, United States has sold weapons enabling its allies to kill civilians and impose starvation. The Saudis initially blamed Iran, and the USA presented Iran's guilt as self-evident.

"The design, characteristics and dimensions of the components inspected by the panel are consistent with those reported for the Iranian-manufactured Qiam-1 missile", the panel said.UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that Iran may be violating Security Council Resolution 2231, which "calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology."The worldwide community does need more evidence to conclude that Iran is violating global law".

Iran's United Nations mission has categorically dismissed as "unfounded" US Ambassador Nikki Haley's claim that a missile fired at Saudi Arabia from Yemen last month was supplied by the Islamic Republic.

The so-called proof that Haley presented was "fabricated".

"When I was based at the United Nations, I saw this show and what it begat...", Zarif said on his Twitter account on Thursday night.

"Today, one of the things that we're doing with all this information is the first step of implementing President Trump's Iran strategy, which is to expose this behavior, to be clear about it, to show it to the world and be clear eyed so we can go forward together as a community, the USA and our partners in the United National in addressing the totality of the Iranian threat", said Laura Seal, a Pentagon spokesperson.

But while Haley described the material as "irrefutable" evidence of the "undeniable fact that the Iranian regime's behavior is growing worse", Iran's government immediately claimed that the Trump administration was brazenly lying.

The U.S. took the unusual step of declassifying military equipment that was gathered in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, where a civil war is taking place between Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and the elected government.

Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back at United States claims over the Islamic Republic's missile support for Yemen.

"These hyperboles" serve the U.S. agenda in the Middle East including the administration's "unbridled support for the Israeli regime", Miryousefi added.

Among them was the remainder of the missile that was sacked by the Houthi rebels in Yemen who attacked the worldwide airport in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, a civilian target.

The ambassador added that the situation will "lead us to the next North Korea", if the world does not do anything to stop Iran.

It also called for holding the Iranian regime and the Houthi militias responsible for their hostile acts against the people of Yemen and the region, accusing them of obstructing the political process and prolonging the political and humanitarian crisis in the country.
