TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “Americans have never been and will never be successful in their puppetry shows against the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.
Velayati then rejected allegations that Iran has sent missiles for Yemeni Houthis, saying that, “They (the US) directly accuse us of meddling in Yemen while they indirectly are denying bravery, resistance and sacrifice of Yemeni nation.”
The Iranian official said that Yemen which has managed to resist against foreigners for decades and centuries must have successful in defeating Saudi-UAE coalition, and aggressors to Yemen have no other way but to blame a foreign country like Iran for that.
Raising such claims would not settle problems in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and the US, he said, adding in case the UAE and Saudi Arabia continue to press ahead with their unwise policies, Yemen would become a quagmire like Vietnam for the US.
The UN Security Council representatives are heading to Washington on Monday for lunch with US President Donald Trump as the US administration is following Iranophobia policies. They are going to see missile remnants the US claims showing Iran is arming Yemen’s Houthis.
