UN Ambassador Haley Puts Iranian Terror Weapons on Display

UN Ambassador Haley Puts Iranian Terror Weapons on Display

Haley said Thursday that a missile fired by Huthi militants at Saudi Arabia last month had been made in Iran.

"While #Iran has been calling for ceasefire, aid and dialogue in #Yemen from day 1, USA has sold weapons enabling its allies to kill civilians and impose starvation".

In an earlier tweet on Thursday, the chief diplomat also compared Haley's allegations against Iran to those of former USA secretary of state Colin Powell who alleged in 2003 that former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction in order to make a case for attacking the country.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the UN secretary general's recent report on UN Security Council Resolution 2231 strongly confirmed what the UAE and its allies had long known - that Iran is continuing its "expansionist and destabilising behaviour in the region, and is fuelling the conflict in Yemen".

Standing before an exhausted missile that Washington says was made in Iran, shipped to Yemen and fired at Riyadh's global airport, Nikki Haley, the American ambassador to the United Nations, declassified the U.S. government's findings of Iran's military activities in the region on Thursday, warning of its rapid expansion and broad ambitions.

Haley accused Iran of supplying the weaponry, and in doing so, defying a United Nations resolution that endorsed the Iran nuclear deal.

President Trump said in October that the US will not certify the Iran nuclear deal, and it is now up to Congress to address the deal's "serious flaws" in order to protect the American people from any threats of nuclear weapons.

"Part of the president's strategy is to clearly show how Iran continues to defy the worldwide community by violating United Nations resolutions", Seal said.

Iran "categorically" rejects the accusation "as unfounded and, at the same time, irresponsible, provocative and destructive", Miryousefi said in a statement. The statement went on: "The U.S. government has an agenda and is constantly at work to deceive the public into believing the cases they put together to advance it".

YouTube rumored to be launching a music subscription service in 2018
Apart from getting major labels on board, YouTube is also reaching out to artists seeking help to promote this new service. Rumors suggest the platform kept negotiating with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment for over a year.

The Iranian mission said the accusations leveled by Haley were meant to divert attention from the devastating war in Yemen being led by Saudi Arabia, a key USA ally.

In addition, the deputy commander of the IRGC's Qods Force, Esmail Ghani, said: "Those defending Yemen have been trained under the flag of the Islamic Republic."Statements by the United Nations and U.S., as well as reports by intelligence agencies, are significant because they corroborate and substantiate what Saudi leaders have previously pointed out, that Houthi missiles targeting Riyadh were made by Iran".

Guterres' report also raises the possibility that Iran may be violating a provision of its 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers calling on it not to develop ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, AP reported.

Haley's announcement comes amid reports that a United Nations investigation into whether Iran supplied the two missiles Yemeni rebels fired at Saudi Arabia this year reached no firm conclusions.

He serves on the boards of the Harvard International Review, the Harvard International Relations Council and the US-Middle East Chamber for Commerce and Business.

"The fight against Iranian aggression is the world's fight", she said.

"These accusations seek also to cover up for the Saudi war crimes in Yemen, with United States complicity", a statement by the mission's spokesman read.

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.
