Charges Against Iran Over Ye­men Com­pletely Base­less

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN (MNA) – In a meet­ing with UN en­voy, Ira­nian of­fi­cial Hos­sein Amir-Ab­dol­lahian said, “The charges against Iran over Ye­men are com­pletely base­less.”

In a meet­ing with the UN spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Iraq Ján Ku­biš on Sun­day, Ira­nian Par­lia­ment’s Gen­eral Di­rec­tor for In­ter­na­tional Af­fairs Hos­sein Amir-Ab­dol­lahian said, “In spite of the con­struc­tive ef­forts of the United Na­tions, the U.S. is trans­fer­ring failed and de­feated ISIL lead­ers from Iraq and Syria to the north of Afghanistan. These ef­forts to main­tain ISIL and ter­ror­ism can be ex­tremely danger­ous for the fu­ture of Iraq, the re­gion and the world. The con­tin­u­a­tion of the US re­gional game of us­ing ISIL in Afghanistan is yet an­other strate­gic mis­take by the White House.”

He then re­ferred to the Ye­meni cri­sis and the U.S.’ false mis­sile-re­lated ac­cu­sa­tions against Iran and said, “The charges against Iran over Ye­men are com­pletely base­less. Tehran has never ad­vo­cated a mil­i­tary so­lu­tion to the re­gion and Ye­men. Ye­men’s fu­ture be­longs to all Ye­meni peo­ple. We have said it from the be­gin­ning that the so­lu­tion to the Ye­men cri­sis is purely a po­lit­i­cal one.” For his part, Ku­biš said, “Our duty is to help the Iraqi gov­ern­ment and peo­ple to main­tain unity and en­force the con­sti­tu­tion.” He hoped that the timely hold­ing of elec­tions with the max­i­mum par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Iraqis in the elec­tion and form­ing of a new Iraqi gov­ern­ment would help the Iraqis reap the ben­e­fits of de­feat­ing the forces of ISIL.

Prais­ing Iran’s con­struc­tive role in com­bat­ing ter­ror­ism in Iraq, he said, “Un­doubt­edly, the res­o­lu­tion of the dif­fer­ences be­tween Bagh­dad and Er­bil and the ac­tive pres­ence of all Iraqis will help to make elec­tions ever more ef­fec­tive.”
