Washington seeks to denounce Iran on Yemen

 

Alsahwa Net- The United States  wants the UN Security Council to condemn Iran on Yemen, but Russia rejects the resolution draft, diplomats said on Wednesday.

The 15-member Security Council is now considering a British-drafted resolution to endorse the deal and ask U.N. chief Antonio Guterres to submit proposals on how to monitor the ceasefire and redeployment of forces.

Kuwait has said it objected a British resolution draft on Yemen, saying that the resolution draft ignored the concerns of Arab countries.

In a press conference, Kuwait representative to the UN Security Council Mansour al-Otaibi said in a press conference that Kuwait and another country “broke the silence on the draft resolution of Yemen.”

The Kuwaiti ambassador, the only Arab member of the UN Security Council, did not make clear the other country, but UN sources said it was Russia, which objected to the name of Iran in the text of the resolution.

The sources said the United States wanted the resolution to include a reference to Iranian support for the Houthis group in the resolution.

Security Council resolutions require the approval of at least 9 members of the 15-member Council, provided that none of the five permanent members of the Security Council uses the veto.
