Iran Rubbishes US Claims of Shipping Arms to Yemen

Iran Rubbishes US Claims of Shipping Arms to Yemen

Alwaght- Iran has rejected US claims that Tehran is shipping weapons to Yemen, saying Washington makes such allegations while continues to supply arms to terrorists.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan made the remarks on Wednesday, in response to US Defense Secretary James Mattis accused Iran of supplying missiles to Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters while on visit to Saudi Arabia.

According to Iran's Defense Ministry website, Brigadier General Dehqan noted that, the oppressed Yemeni people have stood up to the Saudi aggression, which has enjoyed full-fledged US support, by reliance on their own power and capabilities and have managed to prevent their foes from achieving their objectives.

“Today, Takfiri-Wahhabi terrorists are committing crimes in different parts of the world, particularly in Iraq and Syria, with US-made weapons and munitions,” Brigadier General Dehqan said.

He said the American officials had better review the historical record of US military interventions and war crimes committed in Vietnam, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and recently in Syria and Yemen, adding that the US levels accusations against others to get itself out of the quagmire it has been stuck in.

The US defense chief and other senior US strategists should know that the era of launching military aggression, accusing others and interfering in other countries' affairs has come to an end, the Iranian minister said, adding that the US needed to avoid playing blame games against other countries.

Iran's Defense Minister said the US officials also needed to address their domestic problems instead of creating new crises and fanning the flames of war in the West Asia and on the Korean Peninsula.
