Iran’s deputy foreign minister says the failed UN resolution seeking to pressure Iran over Yemen was another sign of the Americans’ isolation on the international stage and the might of the Islamic Republic

Iran’s mission to the UN accused the United States and Britain of misusing the council “to advance their political agenda and put the blame of all that happens in Yemen on Iran”

Iran pledged to continue its regional policies on Tuesday, a day after Russia vetoed a western bid for the United Nations Security Council to call out Tehran for its alleged role in arming Yemen's Houthi group. 
"We will continue our policies in the region in a way that would serve the country's interests," Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said, criticizing Washington for its attempts to step up pressure on Tehran, IRNA reported. 
The US administration has been lobbying for months for Iran to be held accountable at the UN over Yemen. It has presented on several occasions pieces of what it claimed were Iranian weapons supplied to the Houthis, describing it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating UN resolutions. Iran has denied the allegations.
