Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir appealed on Thursday during a meeting in New York with António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, for the international community to address Iran’s interference in the affairs of other countries in the region, especially in Yemen.

Jubeir said that Tehran is providing weapons for the militias which is a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

Ahead of his visit to New York, Jubeir met in Washington with a number of senior officials in the new US administration to discuss ways of cooperation on how to address the challenges in the region.

On Thursday, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs had summoned the Chargé d’affaires at the Iranian embassy in Abu Dhabi and handed him a protest note regarding Tehran’s assistance to the Houthi militias in Yemen, which is a violation of Security Council resolutions prohibiting it.
