Saudi Arabia Awaits UN Probe Into Houthi Missiles

Saudi Arabia Awaits UN Probe Into Houthi Missiles

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said on Tuesday that the July launch involved an Iranian Qiam-1 missile, a liquid-fuelled, short-range variant of the Scud missile.

Iran swiftly dismissed French President Emmanuel Macron's call for talks relating to Tehran's ballistic missiles program.

The uncovered wreckage of the missile indicated "the role of the Iranian regime in manufacturing", Saudi Arabia's Foreign Ministry said earlier this week, without providing further details.

France is "fully aware of our country's intangible position concerning the issue of Iran's defensive affairs, which are not negotiable", the spokesman added.

The president proposed revising the Iran nuclear deal of 2015, saying it "must be preserved", but "complemented with two pillars", which would include "a negotiation on the ballistic activity of Iran, with sanctions if necessary, " and a discussion on "restraining Iranian hegemony in the region".

The Yemeni army on November 5 confirmed that it had targeted Saudi Arabia's King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh with a long-range Borkan H2 ballistic missile.

The deal between Tehran and six world powers including France, Russia, the US, China, Germany, and the United Kingdom involves the removal of sanctions in exchange for Iran curbing its nuclear program.

He claimed that a recent missile attack by Yemen's Houthi fighters on Saudi Arabia was "part of this ballistic activity of Iran in the region".

The United States Congress now has 60 days to reimpose nuclear sanctions.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly and clearly announced that it will not engage in any kind of dialogue with any country about its missile program within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or any other deal", Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told the Tasnim News Agency Friday.
