Yemen plans UN complaint over Iran weapons transfers

NEW YORK -- Yemen plans to complain to the UN Security Council over what it says are Iran's weapon transfers to Houthi allies fighting the internationally recognised Yemeni government, the foreign minister said on Saturday.


The Iranian mission at the UN did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the latest accusation.


"There are new weapons coming from Iran," Mekhlafi said in New York where he was attending the annual UN gathering of world leaders.


"It is impossible to hide that weapons-smuggling is still taking place from Iran. Some of these weapons have been found on the Saudi-Yemeni border and they are Iranian weapons," he said.
