Iran seeks to examine missile parts displayed by USA diplomat

"Its ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region", Haley said at a press conference inside a military hangar at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, in Washington, D.C.

"The weapons might as well have "Made in Iran" stickers on them", said U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, standing before parts of a ballistic missile that she said Iran delivered to Houthi rebels in Yemen, who then fired it at the Riyadh airport in Saudi Arabia last month. Iran's proxy relationship with the Houthis is well-known, but the United Nations itself is not as sure as the US seems to be that the two short-range ballistic missiles fired by the Houthis were Iranian-made, while some experts suspect Saudi Arabia of overstating Iran's meddling in Yemen, the better to justify its own. Aid from Iran's revolutionary guard to risky militias and terror groups is increasing.

"In an attempt to cover up its presence in the region and measures, which can mostly amount to war crimes, the USA levels baseless allegations against the Islamic Republic of Iran by displaying a piece of metal", Zarif told reporters. Nonetheless, the conspiracy theory that the Saudis made the whole thing up will find an audience in the Middle East's already-weaponized fake news environment.

The UN is yet to give its verdict on whether the missiles launched by factions in Yemen came from Iran.

"Everybody has tip-toed around Iran in fear of them getting out of the nuclear deal, and they are allowing missiles like this to be fired over to innocent civilians", she added.

USA senator McCain would return to work after holiday
John McCain says he's feeling well and is looking forward to returning to work in Washington after the holidays. The 81-year-old senator was admitted last week to Walter Reed Medical Center and treated for a viral infection.

Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war pitting the Iran-backed Houthis against a US -backed Saudi-led coalition.

He praised US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley's presentation last week that highlighted Iran's illegal arms program.

Speaking in September about the agreement Tump said: "The Iran deal is not a fair deal to this country".

Trump will revisit the issue by January 13 when he has to decide whether or not Iran has been faithful to the deal.
