3:02 am
thank you for joining us the united states has presented what it calls undeniable evidence that iran is supplying weapons to hoofy fighters in yemen the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley showed off what washington says of parts from any rainy unmade ballistic missile it was fired from yemen last month and nearly hit the airport in saudi arabia's capital riyadh iran cold's those allegations unfounded irresponsible and provocative and denies supplying weapons to the who feeds saudi arabia is demanding the u.n. security council hold tehran accountable iran is prohibited from supplying selling or transferring weapons outside the country unless it's approved by the security council say department correspondent wash rawson jordan has more from washington. the u.s. ambassador to the united nations making paling travel from an institution devoted to diplomacy to a military base on thursday to point the finger at iran the trumpet ministration is accusing to han of illegally supplying weapons to groups across the middle east
3:03 am
explosive boats drones and high am short range ballistic missiles haley told reporters she was standing in front of one of those alleged missiles these are the recovered pieces of a missile fired by who the militants from yemen and a saudi arabia the mess is the nestles intended target with a civilian airport in riyadh. the nov fourth attack on the riyadh airport is one of the many clashes between the saudi backed government and who the rebels trying to conquer the country and the attack is mentioned in the u.n. secretary general's latest report on iran's compliance with the nuclear deal but officials say that mention is not a confirmation there's no conclusive evidence about the provenance of those missiles but you can read the report for yourself even before the press conference was over the iranians rejected haley's charges these accusations seek also to cover up for the saudi war crimes in yemen with the u.s.
3:04 am
complicity and divert international and regional attention from the stalemate war of aggression against the yemenis that has so far killed more than ten thousand civilians displaced three million crippled yemen's infrastructure and health system and pushed the country to the brink of largest famine the world has seen for decades as the un has warned the swedish ambassador to the un told reporters he is concerned the u.s. is trying to find new reasons to scrap the iran nuclear deal as far as i mean informed that agreement is being implemented by iran on the nuclear issue now we would be very happy to discuss with americans. and other as you know the broader role of iran in the region analysts say while checking iran's behavior is important the trumpet ministration is taking a risk i would hope that there would be more evidence forward general and for that matter really obviously she claims to have evidence evidence for that
3:05 am
haley made it clear the u.s. is doing what needs to be done for the sake of national security you will see us build a coalition to really push back against iran and what they're doing well and warning to tell han at least for now. jordan al-jazeera washington and there is a. director at the national iranian american council he thinks the trump administration is selectively picking facts to prop up its case against iran this is one of many steps that we've seen that is that are troubling precisely because it has similar components and has similar characteristics cherry picking intelligence from a u.n. report that was far from conclusive is exactly what nikki haley did today and that's the same kind of cherrypicking that we saw in two thousand to two thousand and three by the bush administration in the run up to of the iraq war so we have to be diligent about this there's no question that the region is in flux and it's been
3:06 am
in flux really since the america's invasion of iraq in two thousand and three and what we've seen now really since the trumpet ministration has come into office is the first american presidential administration to accept full scale unadulterated the saudi emma roddie israeli view of what security in the region should look like and that's why you see a trail of tears spanning from yemen to qatar to lebanon on to iraq and to syria so really we need to take a step back here and focus less on military potential solutions and filling the diplomacy deficit that exists in the middle east. a missed opportunity that's how the u.n. special envoy for syria is describing the latest round of geneva talks which ended with no progress so find a mystery blames the syrian government and go shaders for the failure of the eighth round of political talks the government is accusing the opposition instead david taylor is following those developments in geneva the eighth round of negotiations
