Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, on Thursday introduced what she sees as irrefutable evidence that Iran violated U.N rules by providing Houthi rebels in Yemen with arms.

Haley, holding a press conference at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., presented what she described as recovered pieces of a missile fired by Houthi militants from Yemen into Saudi Arabia, pointing out the missile bears “Iranian missile fingerprints.” Yemen is facing a devastating civil war that has been raging since 2015.

“It’s hard to find a conflict or a terrorist group in the Middle East that does not have Iran’s fingerprints all over it,” Haley said Thursday.

The U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. described Iran’s behavior as a violation of U.N. rules, making her case to not just a U.S. audience but the international community. Haley warned that actions such as Iran’s could lead the world to “the next North Korea,” denouncing the country.

Haley said the president made a good start agreeing to de-certify the Iran deal, and more needs to be done. The former South Carolina governor also said there is a “lot more” uncomfortable evidence the international community will see about Iran’s involvement in the future.

“You’re going to see a rapid flow of other things,” Haley said.

  1. This is Trump’s administration paving the way to void the Iran nuclear deal that Obama pushed for and was signed in 2015 between Iran, the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States—plus Germany), and the European Union.

    I have always thought the Iran nuclear deal is a bad deal for the world. Why should anyone trust Iran, the country that sponsors many terrorist organizations around the world? The US wishy washy attitude toward North Korea over the years has helped North Korea make nuclear missiles today. Same thing with a deal with Iran.
