Yemen - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (15.12.17)


Q - Do you believe that the evidence presented by the U.S. linking Iran with the weapons used in the war in Yemen is incontrovertible? Does Paris have its own source of information that is also incontrovertible?

A - On December 14, the United States presented weapons parts, which they indicated were debris from the missile fired on November 4 from Yemen toward Saudi Arabia. The UN Secretariat also had an opportunity to examine these parts and is currently taking stock of all information available.

No conclusions have been drawn at this stage by the UN Secretariat. France is continuing to examine the information available to it.

France is concerned about Iran’s ballistic missile program and calls on Iran to fully comply with UNSCR 2231.
