Iran reacts to US Powell-Style allegations show

Nikki Haley the US Ambassador to the UN.   Associated Press  Evan Vucci

In a speech in a warehouse at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in the United States capital, Haley said the USA intelligence community has uniformly and unequivocally assessed that Iran is supplying arms to Houthi rebels in Yemen illegally, against a series of UN Security Council resolutions restricting its export of arms and missiles.

"While #Iran has been calling for ceasefire, aid and dialogue in #Yemen from day 1, US has sold weapons enabling its allies to kill civilians and impose starvation". "The weapons might as well have had "Made in Iran" stickers all over it"'.

It "might as well have had "Made in Iran" stickers" on it, she said, adding that Iran was violating United Nations resolutions.

"It was made in Iran then sent to Houthi militants in Yemen", Haley said.

Haley and Seal said that the weapons systems on display were mostly provided to DoD by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as evidence of attacks against them.

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.

But while Haley described the material as "irrefutable" evidence of the "undeniable fact that the Iranian regime's behavior is growing worse", Iran's government immediately claimed that the Trump administration was brazenly lying. 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".

"The Iranian government issued a statement Thursday denying that a presentation earlier in the day by the US represented proof that they'd been sending arms to the Shia Houthis in Yemen in a bid to resist the USA -backed Saudi invasion, saying it was a 'fabrication".

"These hyperboles" serve the US agenda in the Middle East including the administration's "unbridled support for the Israeli regime", said the spokesman.

The US ratcheted up tensions with Iran on Thursday by publicly accusing the Islamic Republic of supplying illegal weapons to a rebel group in Yemen and "fanning the flames of conflict" across the Middle East.

Tensions between Iran and France have increased in recent weeks after President Emmanuel Macron said Tehran should be less aggressive in the region and clarify its ballistic missile program.

"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia welcomes the United Nations report that asserted that the hostile Iranian intervention and its support for the terrorist Houthi militia with advanced and risky missile capabilities threatens the security and stability of the kingdom and the region", SPA said.

"The fight against Iranian aggression is the world's fight", she said. "We take this opportunity to recall the peace plan that Iran formally presented to the UN Secretary-General in 2015 for peacefully settling the conflict and its readiness to contribute towards this goal".
