The United States issued a joint statement with the other members of the Iran nuclear deal Tuesday condemning the rogue nation for violating an arms embargo on Yemen that presented "serious risks to peace and stability in the region".

The UN's independent panel of experts, which monitors the implementation of sanctions, concluded in its most recent report that Iran had failed to prevent weapons transfers to the Houthis.

U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening to pull out of the nuclear deal unless it is made stronger and more is done to limit Iran's ballistic-missile activities and involvement in regional conflicts.

In the press release, Haley stated, "If Russia is going to use its veto to block action against Iran's risky and destabilizing conduct, then the United States and our partners will need to take actions against Iran that the Russians can not block".

The UAE Armed Forces continue to provide military and logistical support for land, air and sea operations in support of brotherly Yemen to rid them of the terrorist Iranian plan being implemented through the Houthi militias.

Tied 1-1 after two periods, the two teams combined for four breathless goals in the final 6:39 of regulation. But getting to sing their own anthem near the end of the Games, that has to give them some satisfaction.

The Yemen Comprehensive Humanitarian Operations (YCHO) had helped 959,879 people, and he said that the number of beneficiaries would exceed a million within two days.

Russian Federation on February 26 vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Iran over the alleged violations, with Russia's UN Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya calling its conclusions "uncorroborated".

The Western powers didn't mention the Russian veto in their statement, but did support and express "grave concerns" about the findings of the United Nations report.

A UN Security Council resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by Russia, China, the United States, France or Britain to pass. It received 11 votes in favor, two against - Russian Federation and Bolivia - while China and Kazakhstan abstained.

The legitimate Yemeni government had to seek support from neighbouring Gulf countries and in March 2015, an Arab coalition, led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the USA, entered Yemen to restore that government. According to Al Jazeera, the draft also urged members of the U.N. Security Council to take further action against Iran for breaching the arms embargo.
