Iran reacts to US Powell-Style allegations show

A missile that the U.S. Department of Defense says is confirmed as a "Qiam" ballistic missile manufactured in Iran by its distinctively Iranian nine fueling ports and that the Pentagon says was sacked by Houthi rebels from Yemen into Saudi Arabia on July 22, 2017 is seen on display at a military base in Washington on December 13, 2017. You will see material from a SHARK-33 explosive boat.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the UN secretary general's recent report on UN Security Council Resolution 2231 strongly confirmed what the UAE and its allies had long known - that Iran is continuing its "expansionist and destabilising behaviour in the region, and is fuelling the conflict in Yemen".

"This purportedly evidence, put on public display today, is as much fabricated as the one presented on some other occasions earlier", said Alireza Miryousefi, spokesman at Iran's mission to the United Nations.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stood before missile remnants that she claimed were covered in Iranian "fingerprints" on Thursday while laying out what she called "irrefutable evidence" that Tehran has violated its worldwide obligations by militarily supporting rebels in Yemen.

Haley said "We do not often declassify this type of military equipment recovered from these attacks, but today we are taking the extraordinary step of presenting it here in an open setting".

During an official visit to Saudi Arabia in May, Trump announced a $110 billion arms deal with Riyadh, said to be the largest in American history.

Haley will discuss what the mission called Iran's "ongoing destabilizing activities in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world".

"We must speak with one voice in exposing the regime for what it is: a threat to the peace and security of the entire world".

Haley echoed Mattis' long-held position that the nuclear deal with Iran, in which sanctions were lifted in return for Iran's halt to its nuclear programs, should not be allowed to divert attention from Iran's other threats to USA national security interests.

"Just imagine if this missile had been launched at Dulles [International Airport outside Washington, D.C.] or JFK [Kennedy International Airport in New York]", Haley said.

"These are the things they're doing while we're looking the other way", Haley said.

Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back at U.S. claims over the Islamic Republic's missile support for Yemen.

AP reported that while Guterres said in the report that Iran's missile activities may run counter to a that non-binding provision of the deal, he said overall Iran has complied with the agreement, which curbs Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

However, I support a US boycott of these games for an additional, more sinister and pervasive reason: South Koreans are dog-eaters; South Korea is a dog-eating nation.
