Tehran, YJC. The Islamic Republic on Wednesday dismissed remarks made by United States Secretary of State John Kerry who accused Iran of interfering in Yemen’s domestic affairs.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said on Wednesday in reaction to Kerry’s claims "Iran’s principled view is determination of destiny of nations by themselves”.

The official also described Kerry’s remarks as a tactic to put the blame on the others, noting that the accusation goes contrary to the previous comments made by US political officials.

Speaking to the Senate appropriations committee on Tuesday, Kerry accused Iran of contributing to the collapse of government in Yemen.

The Iranian spokeswoman also voiced Tehran’s opposition to any foreign interference in Yemen’s political developments, slamming that as an obstacle in the way of political stability in the Arab country.

"Any foreign interference complicates the situation in that country (Yemen),” Afkham underlined.

"All parties should let the Yemeni nation decide the faith of its own country, and the entire mechanisms should be on the basis of people’s will,” she added.

In September 2014, the Yemeni Ansarullah movement gained control of Sana’a, following a four-day battle with army which is still viewed as loyal to the former dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh.
