Iran rejects accusations by France on smuggling weapons to Yemen

TEHRAN, Iran rejected on Thursday France’s allegations regarding shippling weapons to Houthi militias in Yemen.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said that “such a claim is false, and its repetition will make no change in the determination of the Islamic Republic of Iran to enlighten the world’s public opinion about one of the most horrific human calamities, the war crimes of contemporary history and the oppression of defenseless Yemeni people.” The spokesman also called on some French government officials to study the teachings of contemporary and past French thinkers and intellectuals.

“Supplying aggressors with arms and playing blame game will have no results,” Qasemi said, adding that the world consciences will be the ultimate witnesses and judges.

Earlier, France accused Iran of supplying weapons to Houthi militias in Yemen.

“There is a problem in Yemen, it is that the political process has not begun, that Saudi Arabia feels regularly attacked by the Huthis, who are themselves supplied with arms by Iran,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. (end) mw.mb
