Letter to UN on Saudi Charges

Letter to UN on Saudi ChargesLetter to UN on Saudi Charges

In a letter to the United Nations, Iran rejected “imaginary” and “unfounded” Saudi claims of Tehran sending missiles to Yemen, saying Riyadh has repeatedly used the same “scenario” to divert attention from its ongoing atrocities against the Yemeni people. “Accusing Iran of providing or smuggling ballistic missiles to one of the parties to the conflict in Yemen is nothing but an attempt to conceal the brutal and unlawful aggression in Yemen and the extremely appalling situation caused by such aggression,” Ambassador to UN Gholamali Khoshroo said in the letter addressed to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Security Council chief Karel van Oosterom on Thursday, Press TV reported. The letter came days after Saudi envoy to the UN Abdallah Al-Mouallimi wrote to the world body, claiming that Iran should be held accountable for supplying Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement with missiles to target Saudi soil.  The Saudi-led coalition, which has been waging a bloody war on Yemen for three years, recently displayed wreckage of what it called fragments of missiles fired from Yemen, and claimed forensic analysis showed they were supplied by Iran. The coalition has accused Iran of being behind multiple Yemeni missile attacks on the kingdom and threatened Tehran with retaliation.
