Iran Refutes Accusations of Arms Dispatch to Somalia, Yemen

Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaei has rejected as “baseless” accusations of Iran sending weapons to Somalia and Yemen.Khazaei

In a letter to President of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Zhang Yesui on Thursday, Khazaei said initial investigations showed that the ship intercepted by the Yemeni government does not belong to the Islamic Republic.

The Iranian official said the ship had been registered in a European country and sailed under the flag of Panama, adding that none of the vessel’s personnel were Iranian.

Referring to similar accusations leveled against Iran by Yemen, a number of which were later rejected by Yemeni officials, Khazaei said no proof about the latest allegation has yet been presented, describing the allegations as “fabrications and baseless”.

Earlier in February, Yemen’s President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi accused Iran of smuggling arms into the Arab country. The Yemeni government asked the United Nations to probe a seized ship it claims contained Iran-made weapons.

Officials in Washington had earlier said that the ship was intercepted on January 23 in coordination with the US Navy.

In a separate letter to the UNSC president, Khazaei also rejected claims about Iran sending weapons to extremist groups in Somalia as “invalid.”
