Iran pulls Saudi Arabia over Yemen issue

Iran pulls Saudi Arabia over Yemen issueSaudi Arabia, under fire from Iran, has denied the charges of its involvement in military strike against the Yemeni Shia fighters better known as Houthi terrorists in Northern Yemen. It should be recalled that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad pulled Saudi Arabia for killing of the civilians in northern Yemen.

Addressing media persons on Wednesday, Ahmadinejad added, "Saudi Arabia was expected to mediate in Yemen's internal conflict as an older brother and restore peace to the Muslim states, rather than launching military strike and pounding bombs on Muslim civilians in the north of Yemen."

Questioning the integrality of Riyadh, Ahmadinejad said that it should have rather used weapons against Zionists during Israeli 22-day Operation Cast Lead. The Iranian President also pulled Western states for invading Afghanistan and Iraq for its vested interests of controlling oil rich region.

Ahmadinejad maintained, "The Western states have always resorted to massacre of defenseless people, in order to infiltrate into special regions, under the pretext of the September 11 attack and Holocaust."

However, rubbishing charges, the Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal said questioned the intentions of Iranian President and urged him to refrain from making accusations. The minister also pulled Iranian President for meddling in the internal affairs of Yemen.
