Iran's Zarif says U.S. 'in denial' over Saudi attack

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Tuesday that the United States is in denial for suspecting Iran over attacks on Saudi oil facilities, and ignoring that Yemenis were fighting back after years of war against the kingdom.


"U.S. is in denial if it thinks that Yemeni victims of 4.5 years of the worst war crimes wouldn't do all to strike back," Zarif said on Twitter. "Perhaps it's embarrassed that hundreds of billions of dollars of its arms didn't intercept Yemeni fire but blaming Iran won't change that".


The tweet came as a response to U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who said on Tuesday that the United States was reviewing evidence that suggests Iran was behind the attacks on Saudi oil facilities and stands ready to defend its interests and allies in the Middle East.
