US Envoy Says Has 'Irrefutable Evidence' Iran Violating UN Restrictions

Nikki Nimrata Haley, of Indian descent, is a Sikh-Christian convert and wife to Michael Haley of the South Carolina Army National Guard who has served in Afghanistan. He then warned against jumping to conclusions, noting that the United Nations experts are still "carefully reviewing" the evidence.

The US yesterday revealed evidence which it says proves Iran is supplying Yemen's Houthis with weapons which are used to attack Saudi Arabia.

The President has called the deal "one of the worst" and "the most one-sided transaction the United States has ever entered into", and he reiterated his sentiments when he announced the USA would not certify the deal yet - he said the "rogue regime" of Iran is only perpetuating terrorism around the world, and is becoming more aggressive in doing so.

"We did this for a single urgent objective: because the Iranian regime can not be allowed to engage in its lawless behaviour any longer", Mrs Haley said at a briefing at a United States airbase outside Washington DC.

In a statement, the Iranian government rejected the claim that it delivered the missile to the rebels. "The US government has an agenda and is constantly at work to deceive the public into believing the cases they put together to advance it".

The debris included parts of two short-range ballistic missiles that were recently launched by the Houthis into Saudi Arabia, according to the Pentagon; a self-guided unmanned anti-ship explosive boat; an anti-tank guided missile; and an aerial drone equipped with explosives. The so-called proof that Haley presented was "fabricated".

"Following a series of baseless accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran in the past 10 months, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations once again today took the same line accusing the Iranian government of supplying the missile that hit Saudi Arabia on November 4th - an accusation that we categorically reject as unfounded and, at the same time, irresponsible, provocative and destructive", Iran said. "The dangers emanating from Iran are unacceptable and it is imperative that the United Nations and the global community act immediately to ensure an end to these threats".

He stressed that Iran wants peace, dialogue, immediate ceasefire and halt in bombs, and most importantly, the USA must cut off arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

A separate team of United Nations experts who inspected the missile fragments during a visit to Riyadh last month found a possible link to an Iranian manufacturer, the Shahid Bagheri Industrial Group, which is on the United Nations sanctions blacklist.

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.
