Arab states send complaint letter against Iran to UN

Eleven Arab countries have sent a letter of complaint to the United Nations voicing their concerns of Iran’s continuous expansion of their policies in the region, Al Arabiya News channel reported.

The letter condemned Iran's role in Yemen and their support and training of Houthi militias, as well as the smuggling of arms to them.

The Gulf Cooperation Council countries, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Sudan and Yemen sent the letter to Peter Thomson, the president of the UN General Assembly 71st session, and was distributed to UN state members.

The letter comes in response to the false allegations which the Iranian delegation made on September 26 during the general debate of the UN General Assembly.

The letter voiced concerns of Iran’s calls for a revolution, adding that Iran sponsors terrorism in Lebanon, Syria and Yemen and supports terrorist cells and groups in Bahrain, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other countries.

It also said that the operation Decisive Storm was launched upon the request of the legitimate government in Yemen and slammed Iran's attempts to stir sectarian strife in the region.
