The United States, Britain, France and Germany have condemned Iran on Tuesday in a joint statement for breaking UN law prohibiting supply of arms to Yemen.

Their statement comes a day after Russia vetoed a resolution put forward by Britain condemning Tehran. The resolution would also condemn Iran for arming Houthi militias.

Following the Russian veto, the Security Council unanimously adopted a technical resolution which renews the current arms embargo without any reference to Iran.
