Arab blood vs. Arab oil, a primer on US policy: Iran's Zarif
Iranian Foreign Minister said that for US politicians, Arab oil is much more precious than Arab blood.
Zarif referred to US double standard regarding Arab countries and the green light to the Saudi war of destruction in Yemen, adding, "4 yrs of indiscriminate bombardment of Yemen,100,000 dead Yemenis, 20M malnourished Yemenis, 2.3M cholera cases = carte blance for culprits," Iran Press reported.
"Retaliatory Yemeni strike on oil storage tanks = unacceptable "act of war," Iranian Foreign Minister said, pointing to the world's reaction to Yemen's legitimate self-defense.
Arab blood vs. Arab oil / A primer on U.S. policy:— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) September 19, 2019
- 4 yrs of indiscriminate bombardment of Yemen
- 100,000 dead Yemenis
- 20M malnourished Yemenis
- 2.3M cholera cases
= carte blance for culprits.
- Retaliatory Yemeni strike on oil storage tanks
= unacceptable "act of war"
Yemen's Ansarullah movement and their allies in the Yemeni army deployed as many as 10 drones to bomb Abqaiq and Khurais oil facilities run by the Saudi state-owned oil company Aramco before dawn Saturday.
Iran's president, Hassan Rouhani said that the attacks were merely for legitimate self-defense, and no one can expect them to remain silent when their country is destroyed.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a coalition of its vassal states in waging war on Yemen since March 2015.
