Riyadh â€” Saudi Arabia on Sunday said Iran was blocking peace efforts in Yemen by supporting the Yemeni rebels.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said Tehran was smuggling arms to Yemenâ€™s Houthi rebels and to the rebelsâ€™ ally ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
â€œIran is destroying all attempts to find a solution in Yemen, which has led to the failure of all political negotiations between the government and these militias,â€ Jubeir told a gathering in the Saudi capital of foreign ministers and chiefs of staff of member states of the Arab Coalition forces in Yemen.
â€œThese militias would not have continued operations without the support of the greatest sponsor of terrorism in the world â€” the Iranian regime,â€ Jubeir said.
