Zarif: No alternative facts can cover up US complicity in war crimes
Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif has emphasized that no amount of alternative facts can cover up complicity of the US in war crimes in Yemen.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif issued a message on his official Twitter page which highlights role of the US in the Yemeni crisis.
“While Iran has been calling for ceasefire, aid and dialogue in Yemen from day 1, US has sold weapons enabling its allies to kill civilians and impose famine,” read’s message of the Iranian FM.
Zarif later underscores that “no amount of alternative facts or alternative evidence covers up US complicity in war crimes.”
The official issued the message in response to US Ambassador Nikki Haley’s unfounded claim that a missile fired at Saudi Arabia from Yemen last month was supplied by the Islamic Republic.
The US presented for the first time pieces of what it said were Iranian weapons supplied to the Houthi in Yemen, claiming it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating UN resolutions.
