Iran has hit back at the United Arab Emirates claim that Tehran is fomenting regional insecurity whilst highlighting their airstrikes targeting Yemeni civilians and infrastructure.

On Saturday, Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, claimed during the UN General Assembly’s annual ministerial meeting that Iran is the main sponsor of terrorism and that it is undermining regional security.

Iran however have responded back to these claims.

“It is absurd and hypocritical for the official of a country whose jet fighters are bombing innocent civilians in Yemen to accuse Iran of interfering in domestic affairs of other countries,” said Abbas Yazdani, the first secretary of the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations.

He went on to say, “It is also farcical to witness a regime who, along with some other accomplices, have been exporting a host of extremist, Takfiri ideologies for decades and funding and arming terrorists in Iraq and Syria and in many other places, just to take the floor in the UN  to accuse Iran” of trying to stoke tensions.
