Iran wants to examine missile parts the US ambassador to the UN displayed last week as “undeniable” evidence that Tehran has been arming Yemen’s Shiite rebels, AP said. Tehran will file a complaint to the UN and demand that “parts of the missile be delivered to Iran” for examination, according to Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami. He told the semi-official Tasnim news agency on Monday that US claims cannot be “answered remotely.” On Thursday, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley showed off the missile parts to cameras at a military base near Washington. She said the projectile was supplied by Iran and launched by Yemen’s Houthis, targeting an airport in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. The statement was dismissed by Iran as a “fake and fabricated” claim.
