Vastavam web: US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has said there are concrete evidences to prove that Iran is violating UN Security Council resolutions on weapons proliferation.”The fight against Iranian aggression is the world’s fight. The United States is acting today in the spirit of transparency and international cooperation that is necessary to defeat this threat,” she said yesterday, standing in front of a charred ballistic missile the size of a car during a press conference at Joint Base Anacostia Bolling here.”Behind me is an example of one of these attacks. These are the recovered pieces of a missile fired by Houthi militants from Yemen into Saudi Arabia. The missile’s intended target was the civilian airport in Riyadh, through which tens of thousands of passengers travel each day. I repeat: This missile was used to attack an international civilian airport in a G-20 country,” she told reporters.

“Just imagine if this missile had been launched at Dulles Airport or JFK, or the airports in Paris, London, or Berlin.That’s what we’re talking about here. That’s what Iran is actively supporting. What is most revealing about this missile is what’s not here. This is a short-range ballistic missile.The highest-ranking Indian-American in the Trump administration said the US welcomes UN Secretary-General’s Resolution 2231 Implementation Report, as should every nation concerned about Iranian expansion.

Most telling, the report makes a convincing case that Iran is illegally providing the Houthi militants in Yemen with dangerous weapons, she said.The report provides devastating evidence of missiles, conventional arms and explosive boats of Iranian origin used by the rebels in Yemen – all of which violate UN resolutions, she added.”You will see material from an unmanned aerial vehicle, also known as a kamikaze drone, that can take out radar sites.

You will see material from a SHARK-33 explosive boat. These are boats with a warhead inside them that explodes on impact.At the UN headquarters in New York, the British Ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft said they are extremely concerned about Iran’s role in this region.

“We have seen those reports, we are following up very carefully with the United Nations. It is important that the Security Council does our job, which is to assess the reports about Iran’s behaviour and then takes appropriate action,” he told reporters in response to a question.Senator Marco Rubio commended the administration for declassifying information and materials related to Iran’s “malign” activities.
