Alsahwa Net- Deputy Director for Iran Action group of the US State Department, Michael Bell accused on Sunday Iran of prolonging the war in Yemen and undermining the UN-led peace efforts.
In a press interview with the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat daily Newspaper, Bell said that the support by the Saudi-led coalition continues to the legitimate government despite Iran’s meddling.
He said that this shows Iran’s persistence on destabilization of the region and its threats against Saudi Arabia.
He said that the Saudi-led coalition did not fail in Yemen, but Iran has been deepening sufferings of the Yemeni people.
He added that Iran continued providing weapons to the Houthis despite the UN arms embargo on Iran.
