France cautious over U.S. 'evidence' on Iran weaponry in Yemen


Tehran (ISNA) - France reacted cautiously on Friday to U.S. evidence which allegedly claimed Iran supplied weapons to Houthis in Yemen, saying it was still studying information at its disposal and the United Nations had yet to draw any conclusions.

“The United Nations secretariat has not, at this stage, drawn any conclusions. France continues to examine the information at its disposal,” foreign ministry deputy spokesman Alexandre Giorgini said.

The United States on Thursday presented for the first time pieces of what it claimed were Iranian weapons supplied to the Houthis, describing it as conclusive evidence that Tehran was violating U.N. resolutions, Reuters reported.

Giorgini said France remained concerned by Iran’s ballistic missile program and urged it to abide fully by U.N. Security Council resolution 2231.

France’s foreign minister is due in Washington on Monday to in part to discuss Iran and will travel to Tehran at the start of January.
