Iranian DM Asks for Delivery of Missile Debris to Verify US Allegations

19 December 2017 11:51

 

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said Washington is required to deliver to Tehran a part of the debris of the missile that the US claims was Iran-made and fired by the Yemenis at Saudi Arabia to enable verification of the claim by Tehran.

“The technical bodies of the Islamic Republic’s defense sector have compiled a complaint at the UN to request transparency,” General Hatami said.

“The enemies of the Islamic Republic may raise any kind of allegation, but once the compalint is filed, a piece of the missile should be delivered to Iran at the request of the Islamic Republic,” he added.

General Hatami said Iran will soon compile the complaint in the format of a request at the UN.

His remarks came after US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley showed what she claimed to be parts of missiles launched on Saudi Arabia, accusing Iran of providing Yemen army with missiles.

After allegations on the delivery of Iran’s ballistic missiles and its components or technology to Yemen, the UN examined the debris of missiles fired to Saudi Arabia on July 22 and November 4, 2017. The world body has so far achieved no absolute results on the fired missile, Sputnik reported.

In relevant remarks on Saturday, Zarif said that the US raises baseless allegations against Iran by showing a piece of metal.

“The US claims are aimed at covering up its presence in the region and actions which can be mainly regarded as war crimes,” he added.

The Iranian foreign minister said that Haley had no evidence to support her claims, adding, “One of the objectives behind these remarks was to divert attention from Trump’s decision to relocate US embassy from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds.”

He said that the claims are being made by a government that provides Saudi Arabia with cluster bombs which has killed children and elderly in Yemen.

Zarif announced on Sunday that Iran is determined to file a complaint against the baseless claims of US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.

“Iran will send its letter of complaint to the United Nations,” Zarif wrote in an email to Russian News Agency Sputnik.
