UN Security Council adopts Russian-drafted resolution on renewal of Yemen sanctions

UN Security Council adopts Russian-drafted resolution on renewal of Yemen sanctions

The draft resolution reportedly condemned Iran for a Houthi missile strike in December 2017 that targeted Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, indicating that Iran was not in compliance with a 2015 United Nations arms embargo on Yemen.

France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and United States issued a joint statement late on February 27 saying that Iran's failure to comply with the arms embargo, as determined by a panel of UN experts last month, "poses serious risks to peace and stability in the region".

The U.N. Security Council consists of 15 member nations and Al Jazeera noted that Russian Federation used its veto, and other member states abstained from voting, preventing the resolution from passing.

"We can not concur with uncorroborated conclusions and evidence which requires verification and discussions within the sanctions committee", Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told the council. The resolution would also condemn Iran for arming Houthi militias. Nebenzia added that Russian Federation could not vote for a resolution that included such findings, as it would be "dangerous" and "escalate regional tensions".

Arab Coalition fighters supported by the UAE Forces attacked Houthi military reinforcements on farms east of Al Jarahi, where they were taking shelter, while air raids continue to be launched in Jebel Ras against Houthis trying to infiltrate southeast of the Al Jarahi area.

In Yemen, a Saudi-led coalition has been bombing since 2015 Iran-backed Shia Houthi rebels opposed to the internationally recognised government.

The Saudi-led coalition since previous year has been blockading Yemeni ports in an effort to defeat the Huthis, in a move the United Nations says has exacerabated the near-famine conditions in the country.

"If Russia is going to use its veto to block action against Iran's risky and destabilizing conduct", Haley said, "then the United States and our partners will need to take actions against Iran that the Russians can not block".

Haley's statement comes as the Trump administration is considering nixing the Iran nuclear deal unless substantial changes are made, and Haley said that the Security Council "doesn't help" proponents of the deal.

The Iranian diplomat also reiterated Tehran's stance on Yemen, stressing that only a political solution and intra-Yemeni dialog can put an end to the country's conflict. "I told him over 65% of Shiites in Bahrain are being seriously discriminated against, and Hammond said he knows about the Shiite "minority" living in Bahrain", the Iranian official noted.
