Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif has reacted to statements by US Secretary of State John Kerry who had accused Iran of sending military equipment to Houthi forces in Yemen, Mehr news reported on Friday.

Zarif highlighted that the “US has engaged itself in Saudi’s inhumane child-killing war against innocent people of Yemen,” and added, “no doubt, US now has to be responsible for all the inhumane crimes.”

“Certainly Mr. Kerry knows, better than everyone, that the Saudis have tried hard to annul all efforts made for establishing ceasefire in Yemen,” underlined Zarif.

He continued “it is high time US government learned from its egregious errors in Syria and Iraq by realizing existing facts and realities.”

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly stated that its military power has never been a threat to any state for being purely defensive,” underscored the official.

“Mr. Kerry must be well aware of the origins and causes of the intellectual basis and political and financial resources of Takfiri terrorism which is the main threat to the region and world today,” stressed FM Zarid concluding “no doubt, the US is compounding the invalidity of its policies in the region by supporting terrorists while ignoring and neglecting realities.”

Why can’t Iran arm the Houthis? Or the Palestinians? Why can the US arm anyone it likes but there’s always controversy about arming certain groups the West doesn’t back

Iran can surely arm the Houthis but they can’t arm palestinians because there are NO palestinians! You don’t believe me? Read this! : “The ‘palestinian’ people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a “Palestinian” people since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot… Read more »

If this is true, Iran just provided documentation and dual use electronics and chemicals to upgrade old SAMs into ballistic missiles. They could have considered helping upgrading those as pure SAMs too : if the seekers are totally outdated, the rockets are still more than potent : a 1967 S-200 (Sa-5) with modern seeker and vectoring throttle rocket-engine and some modern radar and/or FLIR could be really devastating for saudi F-15s, even at high altitude. Even older Sa-1 or Sa-3 once upgraded could be very potent and all would be MUCH more dangerous than ManPADS, forcing KSA into buying (expensive)… Read more »

Claims that Saudis are exterminating Houthis are not baseless, even though they go unreported @leithfadel

When the UK & USA arm the Saudi invaders, WHY should the Islamic Republic NOT arm the Yemenis protect their lands? Zarif should pay a visit to Yemen and talk about helping the Yemeni Army and Houthis against the cannibals.
