UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, said on Monday that the Iran’s political discourse and policies are moving on three axis, defending its missile program, justifying their presence in Syria and covering up the violations of Houthi militias in Yemen.

“The current Iranian political discourse is moving on three axis: defending its missile program after it has been exposed as non-defensive, justification for an extended military presence in Syria, providing political cover for the Houthi militias in Yemen after they have destroyed the General People’s Congress party in Yemen,” he tweeted.

“Their talk of Iran’s regional victory is proof that such domination based on violence and militancy lacks legitimacy, and this is a matter of concern to Tehran in its expansionist Arab adventures.”

Gargash added that as Iran seeks to exploit the Jerusalem situation, their policy of violence and sabotage in the Arab world denies them any legitimacy.
