Iran: US Openly Supports Saudi Atrocities in Yemen
Iran on Sunday accused the United States of responsibility for atrocities in Yemen through its support for Saudi Arabia, which is leading a coalition fighting people in Yemen.
Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghassemi said a White House statement on Friday in support of Riyadh “clearly and without question proves America’s participation and responsibility in the atrocities committed by Saudi Arabia in Yemen”.
In its statement, Washington had said it was “committed to supporting Saudi Arabia… against the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ aggression and blatant violations of international law.”
Accusing Washington of making “totally unfounded” allegations, Ghassemi said its statement on Friday showed it “openly supports… appalling atrocities” by Saudi Arabia in Yemen.
