  • France's President Emmanuel Macron meets with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani in New York for the UN General Assembly

During his visit to the United Arab Emirates on Thursday, Macron suggested amending the JCPOA.

The United States accused Iran on Tuesday of supplying Yemen's Houthi rebels with a missile that was sacked into Saudi Arabia in July and called for the United Nations to hold Tehran accountable for violating two U.N. Security Council resolutions.

"What we have seen, clearly from the results of the ballistic missile attacks, that there have been Iranian markings on those missiles, that's been demonstrated", Harrigian said. He raised the prospect of possible sanctions with regard to those activities.

Eight reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have confirmed Iran's full compliance with the agreement.

She said a missile shot down over Saudi Arabia on Saturday "may also be of Iranian origin".


He claimed that a recent missile attack by Yemen's Houthi fighters on Saudi Arabia was "part of this ballistic activity of Iran in the region".

Tehran expects Paris to remain "realistic, fair and farsighted" when it comes to the sensitive developments in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf regions, Qassemi underlined.

"The French president perfectly knows that making such claims against the Islamic Republic of Iran fits no reality of the past decades' realities in the Middle East", highlighted the Iranian diplomat. He then mentioned that "there are extremely strong concerns about Iran" among its Arab neighbors in the Persian Gulf.

"The French government is expected to undertake tangible policies like forcing its regional allies to immediate halt of war and bloodshed, creating truce, and establishing peace and stability in Yemen", Qassemi urged the French. Saudi defense forces intercepted the missile and brought it down near Riyadh airport without causing any casualties.

Tehran has dismissed the accusation, with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stating that Riyadh was trying to blame others for the consequences of its aggression in Yemen.
