Yemen recalls its ambassador to Iran

The Riyadh-based Yemeni government has insisted that an Iranian aid ship bound for the war-damaged country consent to inspections before docking

Published: Updated:

Yemen’s government recalled its ambassador to Iran on Thursday after the Islamic republic refused that an aid ship it had sent to a Yemeni port be searched, the foreign minister's office announced, according to Reuters news agency.

The Riyadh-based Yemeni government has insisted that an Iranian aid ship bound for the war-damaged country consent to inspections before docking, but Tehran has described such a search as illegal.
