UN to Vote on Anti-Iran Resolution UN to Vote on Anti-Iran Resolution

The United Nations Security Council is expected to vote on Monday on a British-drafted UN resolution that would condemn Iran for allegedly violating a UN arms embargo by providing missiles and drones to Houthi fighters in Yemen and commit to future action against Tehran. Kuwait's UN Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaiba is the current council president. He told reporters on Saturday, "We are still working on the text, but the intention is to adopt it Monday morning," AP reported on Sunday.  Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said last week he opposed the draft, saying it should be about renewing the work of experts monitoring sanctions against Yemen, not condemning Iran. The experts claimed in a January report that they had identified Iranian missile remnants and other equipment introduced into Yemen after the 2015 arms embargo that were fired into Saudi Arabia.
