Iran handed over the state’s Yemen embassy to the Houthi militia which have resulted to criticisms, state news agency SPA reported on Wednesday.

The Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit condemned Iran’s step considering it a flagrant violation of diplomatic norms and of the United Nations Charter, the Vienna Convention, and the relevant Security Council resolutions – in particular Resolution 2216.

The move, he added, also reflects an Iranian insistence to destabilize Yemen’s conditions, and threaten the security of its neighbouring countries.
