Saudi Arabia called on the United Nations Security Council to take appropriate measures against Iran’s active support of terrorism saying that it is seeking to compromise the security of the Kingdom and the region.

In a letter presented by the Saudi mission to the United Nations on Wednesday, ahead of the closed session on the Humanitarian situation in Yemen, the Kingdom detailed the terrorist actions of the Iranian allied Houthi militias.

The Houthi militias resorted only to aggression and violence since the beginning of the Yemeni crisis, the letter said.

The militias refusal to the return of legitimacy, it said, or abide by the Security Council resolutions, has led to humanitarian disasters adding to that their dismissal of all political solutions to the conflict.

Saudi Arabia stressed on the fact that Iran 's continuous supply of weapons to the militias in Yemen through smuggling routes, and the presence of Hezbollah fighters on the ground to assemble and operate these weapons, is clear evidence of Iran 's aggression.

This support for terror directly endangers the Kingdom's national security as well as regional and global security, the letter stated.

The Kingdom revealed to the Security Council evidence of the involvement of the Iranian regime in missile development and launches towards the Kingdom on November 4 and July 22 of this year.

The letter noted that numerous smuggling operations of Iranian weapons to Yemen have been thwarted adding that this is a flagrant violation of Security Council resolution 2216 from 2015 and resolution 2231 from 2016.

The Kingdom affirmed that it will take appropriate action to respond to acts of violence and terrorism by the Houthi militias in order to safeguard the Kingdom's security in accordance with the United Nations Charter and international laws.
