UAE Summons Iran Envoy Over Yemen

The UAE Foreign Ministry summoned the Iranian charge d’affaires in protest at what Abu Dhabi claims to be Tehran’s “provision of weapons” to Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah fighters, an allegation the Islamic Republic has repeatedly dismissed as unfounded. Abdul Rahim al-Awadi, the UAE’s assistant minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation for legal affairs, handed the Iranian envoy a note of protest, the official Emirates News Agency was as cited as saying by Press TV on Thursday. Awadi said Iran’s alleged provision of arms to the Houthis violates a number of United Nations Security Council resolutions, which prohibit such arms supplies. The UAE is a key Saudi ally in its deadly aggression against Yemen that was launched in March 2015 to reinstall the fugitive president Abd-Rabbu Mansur Hadi and crush the government of Houthi Ansarullah movement. Riyadh and its regional and western partners, including the US, have on numerous occasions accused Iran of shipping arms to Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters.  Tehran has strongly rejected the claims as baseless and unsubstantiated.
