In reaction to the recent Arab outlet which claimed that Iran had been smuggling weapons and military equipment from port city of Bandar Abbas to Yemen's Al-Hudaydah, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kana'ani recent "baseless" allegations which said Iran had been smuggling weapons to Yemen.
“The crimes they have been committing in Yemen for more than seven years is the thing they must have been accounted for, this has brought the biggest humanitarian disaster of the century,” he said.
“Deflecting the regional and international public opinion away from the realities on the ground in Yemen is the aim of such baseless claims. Iran’s support for the Yemeni people has been political in nature since the beginning of the country's crisis, “he added.
He went on to say that “The continuation of hostile policies and the repetition of threadbare scenarios by Saudi Arabia will not lead to a new result in favor of the aggressors,” and repeatedly rejected allegations about sending weapons to Yemeni forces.
