Yemen President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi vowed at the United Nations on Friday to “extract Yemen from the claws of Iran” as he accused Tehran of impeding peace by taking a “multitude of actions and interventions.”

A Saudi-led Arab coalition has been fighting Houthi rebels in Yemen since March 2015 in a bid to restore the internationally-backed Hadi to power. Saudi Arabia and Yemen accuse Iran of supplying the rebels with weapons. Iran denies the allegation.
