France accuses Iran of supplying arms to Houthis

We are not suggesting we ignore our differences and disputes but that we don't let them ruin our relations writes Zarif

Yemen's defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the Saudi-led coalition for three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

"There is a problem in Yemen: it is that the political process has not begun, that Saudi Arabia feels regularly attacked by the Houthis, who are themselves supplied with arms by Iran", French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said, according to AFP.

The coalition threatened on Monday to retaliate against Iran, accusing it of being behind dozens of missiles - all of which have been intercepted - aimed at Saudi Arabia since a year ago.

Seventy eight percent of 104 ballistic missiles that have been launched on Saudi Arabia, including Mecca and Riyadh, come from Yemen's Saadah and north of Amran, said Maliki.

Iran continues to deny that it arms the Yemeni rebels, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia that the evidence of an arms connection is irrefutable.

Brits set to spent 5.3% more on Easter eggs in 2018
Patrick Church in Jordan have prepared for the Easter holiday by participating in the Stations of the Cross. Families who visit the center during the Easter Egg Hunt can also snap a photo with the Strolling Bunny.

Amnesty International said last week the weapons provided by France, along with the US and Britain, to Saudi Arabia had contributed to the deaths of thousands of civilians in attacks by coalition forces.

Le Drian insisted Thursday that the weapon sales complied with global law.

Le Drian visited Tehran in early March to lay the groundwork for Macron s coming visit, and to discuss the landmark 2015 deal with global powers that curtailed Iran s nuclear programme. Trump has given the European signatories a May 12 deadline to "fix the awful flaws" of the 2015 nuclear deal, which was agreed under his predecessor Barack Obama, or he will refuse to extend USA sanctions relief on Iran.

On the question of how these missiles are being smuggled into Yemen, Col. Al-Malki stressed that the smuggling of missiles did not start from Iran, but from the southern suburb of Beirut, where they were transported via Syria to Iran and then dispatched by sea by the so-called mother boat or ship to Yemen.

"We want a frank discussion with Moscow, a demanding one without any ambiguity, to ask Moscow to respect global law", he said.
