Iranian FM spokesman shrugs off Saudi threats

Proxy wars: 'rock' bombs in Yemen point to Iranian aid

But an intensification of the Yemen conflict and certainly an escalation to direct conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia could scare off foreign investors.

The independent watchdog said it examined a fiberglass-encased bomb, packed with explosives, and found a type of Chinese-manufactured wire covering used in other Iranian materiel. "The reality is that the Saudis and their allies have faced only the Yemeni people's resistance and experienced a disgraceful defeat".

Newly-installed US National Security Advisor John Bolton encouraged Israel to attack Iran when the latter served as US ambassador to the United Nations, former IDF Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz said Sunday.

The Shi'ite Houthis, who control northern Yemen, deny close ties to Iran, and have insisted in the past that missiles fired at Saudi Arabia are part of Yemen's pre-war stockpile, and retaliation for Saudi airstrikes.

The Islamic Republic wants Saudi Arabia to immediately join a peace process in Yemen and stop actions that have failed to bring peace to Yemen, Khoshrou said.

"It is not the first time Saudi Arabia enters into correspondence against Iran in order to cover up its defeats in Yemen, and the worldwide community is well aware of this fact", Khoshrou was quoted as saying by Iran's state TV.

He expressed concerns at what he called the sale of USA weapons to Saudi Arabia.

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the Saudi-led coalition for three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

A USA official said Washington would support Saudi Arabia's "right to defend its borders" following missile attacks on the kingdom from Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi militia.

Rashed wrote: "The situation would have been frightening; much worse and more serious for both Yemen and Saudi Arabia, and would have caused a wider war than the one we have witnessed in the past 36 months".

The Iranian spokesman made the remarks in response to a joint statement by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt earlier in the day, in which the two urged Iran to stop sending weapons to the Houthis.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 in a campaign to restore its internationally recognised government after it was driven into exile by Houthi forces.

The war has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and displaced over 3 million, according to humanitarian agencies.
