Iran Decries West for Continued Arms Sales to Saudi, UAE

Iran's foreign minister has once again slammed Western governments for pushing through arms exports to Saudi Arabia and its allies, which are used in the devastating Yemen war, according to Press T.V.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Western-made weapons are being used by Saudi Arabia and the UAE to perpetrate war crimes in Yemen.
