Russia Moves To Veto U.N. Resolution Condemning Iran For Arming Rebels

Russia is set to veto a U.S.-backed bid for the United Nations to take action on Iran for allegedly supplying weapons to terror groups.

The U.N. Security Council will decide whether it will renew sanctions on Yemen Monday, and add Iran to the list.
However, Moscow has made it clear it will vote down any proposed sanctions on Iran despite evidence showing the country has supplied weapons to Houthi rebels to carry out attacks on the Yemeni government.
The U.S. has been lobbying for months for Iran to be held accountable at the U.N. for violating an arms embargo on Houthi leaders.
The United Kingdom and France are mirroring U.S. calls to condemn Iran for its support of the Houthi rebel group.
