The political coordinator of the US mission to the UN, Rodney Hunter, expressed to the Security Council on Friday his country's regret that the new UN resolution on Yemen did not hold Iran accountable for its actions in the war-torn country.
The United States had wanted to condemn Iran for breaching an arms embargo on Yemen, but Russia objected, diplomats said.
"We hope that in the days to come Iranian missiles or misdeeds do not shatter the promise of peace and bring us back to where we were before. But if that does happen, this council may come to regret this omission," US diplomat Rodney Hunter told the Security Council after the vote.
At the end of last month, the US provided evidence on Iran violating UN arms export ban in Yemen.
The US special envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, displayed rockets, missiles, small arms and debris from an Iranian drone that he says were intended for Houthis in Yemen.
