Tillerson: Iran supports Houthis and threatens naval navigation in the Gulf


Al-Arabia - US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a press conference in Washington on Wednesday that Iran continues to support the Houthi militia in Yemen and threatens naval navigation in the Arabian Gulf.

Tillerson also noted that Iran funds insurgents in Syria as well as sends troops to fight in support of President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

He added that Tehran's nuclear ambitions place a threat on world peace, and it holds the worst record with human rights – highlighting that Iran's danger to the region and world must be seen.
