Abbas Araqchi has rejected allegations made by Yemen’s Foreign Minister that Iran is meddling in Yemen’s internal affairs by supporting [Shiite] factions and militias which share its political agenda in the region. “Unfortunately, the Yemeni foreign minister talks in the same manner as the previous government that was overthrown by the people of Yemen.” Yemen accused Iran of smuggling weapons and sophisticated military equipment into Yemen in its support of the Huthis [Shiite rebel group in the northern part of Yemen bordering Saudi Arabia].
