The American Envoy to the United Nations says there is “undeniable proof” that Iran is breaking international law.
On Thursday, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley stood in front of what she said was an Iranian-made missile, and accused Iran of supplying it to Houthi rebels in Yemen.
The missile was fired at an international airport in Riyadh early last month, and is now on display at a navy base in Washington D.C.
Haley argues the sale of weapons to terror groups not only violates U.N. resolutions, but serves as evidence that Iran is trying to destabilize the Middle East.
While Iran and other countries are skeptical of the claims, Haley is certain the missile is Iranian-made.
“The evidence is undeniable..the weapons might as well have had made in Iran stickers all over it,” said Haley. “The United States stands ready to share what we know to further the cause of peace…we ask our friends and our allies to do the same.”
Haley went on to say that representatives from other countries have visited the warehouse where the missile is on display, and she expects analysts from other countries, Congress, and the press to visit in the coming days.
Experts say the Trump administration will use the evidence to build support for push back against dangerous Iranian behavior.
