Iran denies US allegations about sending missile fuel to Yemen.


Iran's representative to the United Nations denied the allegations of a spokesman for the US Fifth Fleet in the region that "Iran sent a shipment of 70 tons of missile fuel to Yemen."


In a note sent to the Associated Press, the representative said, "Iran considers itself bound by UN Security Council Resolution 2216 on the issue of the arms embargo on Yemen, and that it has not taken any action against this resolution, and is cooperating effectively with the sanctions committee that was formed accordingly." The resolution, and so far not every allegation that has been made against Iran of violating this resolution has been substantiated."


The representative said: "Iran is making every effort to revive the ceasefire agreement and establish dialogue between the Yemeni parties as soon as possible in order to bring peace and stability to Yemen.


Earlier, the US Navy claimed to have arrested a shipment of missile fuel that was hidden among fertilizer bags on a ship bound from Iran to Yemen.


For its part, the Sanaa government renewed the accusation of the United States of obstructing the peace process in Yemen, and held it responsible for the war and the siege imposed for more than 7 years.
