The United States and three European allies condemned Iran on Tuesday after a UN report found Tehran had violated the arms embargo on Yemen by failing to block supplies of missiles and drones to Houthis.

Britain, France, Germany and the United States urged Iran to “immediately cease all activities that are inconsistent or would violate” the UN resolution that established the arms embargo in 2015.
The joint condemnation came a day after Russia vetoed a British-drafted resolution renewing sanctions on Yemen and citing “particular concern” for the report’s findings about Iran.

According to Middle East Eye, the report by a UN panel of experts in January concluded that Iran was in violation after determining that missiles fired by the Houthis at Saudi Arabia last year were made in Iran.
Russia, however, questioned the findings and blocked the resolution, saying the report did not contain conclusive evidence of Iran’s violation of the arms embargo.

Iran has repeatedly denied arming the Houthis, despite Tehran’s vocal opposition to Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign in the impoverished country, which Iranian leaders have called a “genocide”.
“We condemn Iran’s non-compliance, as described by the panel, which poses serious risks to peace and stability in the region,” said the joint statement released by the US mission.
All four countries are signatories to the Iran nuclear deal.

The result of the group’s long-term negotiations with Iran was the signing of an agreement (Bargam) that the current president of the United States strongly opposes.
The United States accused Moscow of “supporting a government in Iran that is sponsoring terrorism,” After Russia’s key role in removing Iran’s name from the Yemeni sanctions extension.

Iran has always rejected these allegations and accused Western countries of creating crises in the region.
