Posted on 01/15/2018 8:08:53 AM PST by nuconvert
Irans missile program has been the target of criticism by the US and the European Union for quite some time. When Yemeni Houthi rebels launched a missile toward Saudi Arabia on November 5, 2017, Iran was accused of having supplied it to them, a charge Iranian officials categorically denied. But on Friday, January 12, a United Nations panel concluded that the Islamic Republic had violated a UN arms embargo by directly or indirectly providing missiles and drones to the Shi'ite rebels in Yemen.
In the 79-page report, the panel accuses Iran of violating UN Security Council Resolution 2216, passed in July 2015, which imposed an arms embargo on Yemeni combatants. In effect, the report not only traces the missiles back to Iran, it also makes clear that the missiles were provided to Houthis after the resolution was passed. In other words, Iran cannot escape responsibility by claiming that it had armed the Houthis before the passage of the resolution.
The report also specifically mentions that Iran has not observed Article 14 of the resolution. The article states: All Member States shall immediately take the necessary measures to prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of arms and related materiel of all types and technical assistance, training, financial or other assistance, related to military activities to Houthis, whether directly or indirectly. This means the report prevents Iranian officials from using the excuse that the Houthis had received the armaments indirectly.
Evil regime being evil. World keeps repeating mistakes.
The UN will send them a strongly worded letter written in all caps................
“great, lets pass another resolution.”
Nothing like a strongly worded diplomatic note to put the fear of Allah in them! If they still take no action, then a resolution should follow. Bet they’re quaking in their sandals.
Agree to anything infidels toss in your path, then go about your nasty business with Muhammad's blessings.

Didn’t dear leader teach you guys anything??
We need to throw another $150 billion to them ... and they’ll be NICE to us!!
It’s not another UN resolution that’s important.
I think it gives Trump (and Congress) justification for taking action against Iran
Oh no! They violated a UN resolution!
When the UN does anything but criticize America and ask for money (from America), that IS news.
What’s the toothless UN going to do about it?
Germany must be sanctioned for the sins of Siemens and Thyssenkrupp
What is being forgotten here is that it is in their bible encouraging them to harm the infidel.
Muslims must not take the infidels as friends. Koran 3:28
Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels. Koran 8:60
4. Koran 9:73 O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.
Maybe the UN will take away the iranian diplomat parking privileges in NYC? OUCH!
But Obum,Skerry, Jarrett, et al told us we could trust them to abide
They can’t walk out.
They park where ever they want to. Many diplomats have tons of unpaid tickets because of diplomatic immunity.
