The United Arab Emirates’ assistant minister of foreign affairs has summoned on Thursday the Charge d'Affaires of the Iranian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, handing him a note of protest on Iran’s illegal provision of weapons to Houthi militias in Yemen.

Dr. Abdul Rahim Al Awadi, said that Iran’s move is in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions prohibiting this, adding that it is considered an attack on international legitimacy, the rule of Yemen, and fuels the conflict there, WAM news agency reported.

He noted that the UN Security Council Resolution No. 2216 on Yemen is clear in this respect, so accordingly, the Iranian weapons and unmanned aircraft which the Arab coalition forces targeted recently, are a clear violation of the relevant international resolutions.
