Iran regime facing criticism from US, France and Saudi Arabia

The Iranian Regime came under diplomatic fire from three separate world powers this week, thanks to its destabilizing activities in the Middle East, its ballistic missile programme, and the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

At a European foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels on Monday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian criticised the Regime for not abiding by the UN resolution which enshrines the nuclear deal and calls on the Regime not to work on ballistic missiles designed to carry nuclear warheads.

He also said that the EU foreign ministers had concerns over Iran’s “destabilizing” activities in Yemen, Lebanon and Syria.

While US Vice President Mike Pence, who was speaking at the Israeli parliament in Jerusalem, confirmed that the US working to curb Iran’s nuclear and ballistic programs and would withdraw from the nuclear deal unless its flaws were fixed.

He said: “The … deal is a disaster and the United States will no longer certify this ill-conceived agreement.”

Also on Monday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir accused Iran of supplying the terrorist Houthis in Yemen with over 60 ballistic missiles that have been fired at Saudi Arabia since the start of Yemen’s war in 2015.

Al-Jubeir told ministers from the Saudi-led Arab coalition supporting Yemen’s internationally recognized government that the Houthis were responsible for the destruction in Yemen, including the fall in the value of Yemen’s currency after their latest ballistic missile launch against Saudi Arabia.

He also stated that they would give an extra $1.5 billion in humanitarian aid to Yemen in addition to creating “safe passage corridors” to transport that aid to non-governmental organizations inside Yemen.

Mohammed Al-Jaber, the Saudi Ambassador to Yemen, said: “When the Houthis launch missiles at Saudi Arabia they expect a big reaction, and that is true, our reaction is huge — and that is to increase our help and aid to the Yemeni people.”

The coalition was behind this effort, which will reduce the amount to which the Iran-backed Houthis can destabilise the country.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki Al-Maliki said: “The Houthis try to provoke the coalition through their missiles and their attacks, but we fight back with giving more humanitarian aid. The coalition is placing its military resources at the disposal of these broad-ranging humanitarian operations. We are backing a professionally planned and detailed humanitarian mission with military power and precision to guarantee that the humanitarian aid reaches the people who need it, to ease their suffering.”
