Saudi Arabia supported on Sunday a draft resolution from Britain, the United States and France in the United Nations to condemn Iran for allowing ballistic missiles into the hands of Yemen’s Houthi rebel group, Reuters reports.
There’s a proxy war in Yemen between Iran and Saudi Arabia, who is backed by the United States.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told Reuters that “Iranian missiles were regularly used by Houthis ‘to target civilians in Yemen as well as inside Saudi Arabia.'”
The U.N. resolution draft would need to be adopted by Feb. 26, but Reuters says it’s likely it will be opposed by Russia. It would need nine votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, the United States, France or Britain.
Iran denies the allegations.
