Saudi Arabia to UN – Hold Iran accountable

United Nations — Saudi Arabia submitted a letter to the UN Security Council regarding the Iranian ballistic missiles fired by Houthis toward the Kingdom which killed one person and injured two others on Sunday night.

The Kingdom demanded that Iran be held accountable for supplying the Houthis with ballistic missiles.

It also called on the UN Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities to maintain international security and stability.

The letter was submitted by Kingdom’s permanent representative at the UN Abdullah Al-Muallami.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States Prince Khalid Bin Salman on Tuesday spoke out against the Iranian regime following the missile attacks.

In a series of Twitter posts, Prince Khalid wrote: “The Iranian regime continues to violate international laws as it tests the world’s resolve. It is still supporting terrorism in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain and Yemen. It provides the terrorist Houthi militias with missiles in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.”

“The only way to prevent further conflict in the region is to hold Iran accountable for its violations of all international laws. Friends and enemies are watching for the world’s reaction; it will shape the behavior of countries in region on the long term,” he added.

Col. Turki Al-Malki, spokesman of the Coalition Forces for Supporting the Legitimacy in Yemen, said on Monday that the crimes committed by the Iranian regime constitute a devastating threat to regional and international security and flagrant violation of international laws and relevant UN resolutions.

He said the world community and the UN Security Council must take necessary measures to hold the Iranian regime accountable for violating the UN Security Council resolutions.

Addressing a press conference at the Armed Forces Club in Riyadh, Al-Malki said the Iran-backed Houthi militias launched on Sunday night as many as seven ballistic missiles carrying the stamp of the terror-sponsor Iranian regime.
