Haley: We 'Need to Take Action on our Own' on Iran

Nine votes and no vetoes from the five permanent council members - Britain, France, China, Russia and the United States - are required to adopt resolutions at the Security Council.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, an worldwide advisor to Iranian Parliament Speaker, says Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists have expanded their presence in southern Yemen, which is mostly controlled by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The draft resolution before the UN Security Council called for holding Iran accountable for violating the arms embargo and included a council commitment to take action over it.

Amir-Abdollahian blasted the British government for drafting the recent anti-Iran resolution at the UN Security Council, which was vetoed by Russian Federation, and said, "Unfortunately the United Kingdom has adopted double-standard policies towards the region".

France, Germany, and the United Kingdom released a statement with the USA condemning Iran for its "non-compliance" after a panel of U.N. experts found that it failed to "prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of Iranian arms and related materiel, including "extended-range" short-range ballistic missiles, military equipment and unmanned aerial vehicle technology that can be considered military equipment, to the then Houthi/Saleh alliance in Yemen". The Russian text was adopted as Resolution 2402, in which no reference was made to Iran.

The Saudi-led coalition, which has intervened in Yemen's war since 2015 to try to restore president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power, has conducted frequent air strikes and has often hit civilians, although denies ever doing so intentionally.

In a bid to win Moscow's support, the draft that was vetoed had been weakened to simply "note with particular concern" the violation, which was reported to the council by United Nations experts monitoring sanctions.

The Western powers said that the move by the Huthis to fire missiles into Saudi Arabia "has the potential to turn a local conflict into a broader regional one".

The Saudi-led Coalition to support Legitimacy in Yemen called on the United Nations to put Houthi militants, including Head of the Revolutionary Committee Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, in the list of sanctions issued under resolution 2140.

The Western powers in their statement called on all parties in the conflict to return to peace talks and comply with worldwide humanitarian and human rights law, including allowing food and medical aid shipments into all of the country's ports and airports.

The war in Yemen has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and displaced over 3 million others, according to humanitarian agencies.

In January, Donald Trump vowed to re-impose USA sanctions on Iran unless the deal was amended to fix its major flaws.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley told reporters that the Russian veto "isn't going to make the decision on the nuclear deal", but that it also doesn't help.
