Trump dined with diplomats from the UN's decision-making body at the White House after they toured Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington to see the twisted metal fragments from a weapon that Tehran allegedly provided to Yemen's Houthi rebels.

"We believe what the Council saw today makes it clear that the evidence continues to grow that Iran is blatantly ignoring its global obligations", Haley said.

The Iran deal was brokered under the Obama administration, and sought to curb Irans nuclear programme in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief. "Iran's aggression is a threat not just to its neighbours but to the entire world". "How can we pass judgment prematurely before we know what it is about", Nebenzia said.

The missile was shot down and caused no casualties.

Russian Federation on Wednesday dismissed evidence presented by the United States and UN experts that Iran had supplied missiles to Yemen's Huthi rebels as inconclusive, signaling it would oppose a bid to slap sanctions on Tehran.

A recent report by the panel of experts bolstered the USA claims when it concluded that Iran had violated the arms embargo on Yemen by failing to block supplies of missiles to the rebels.

In a new post on his Twitter account, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denounced how American President Trump is acting in the Middle East and reassures that while the non-democratic rulers of the region may be the closest allies of U.S., the people of the Middle East know how United States is acting against them.

Iran has denied arming the.

The remarks came after U.S. President Donald Trump escalated anti-Iran efforts on Monday, taking ambassadors from the United Nations Security Council on a field trip to inspect what American officials called remnants of Iranian missiles and other weaponry supplied to Houthis in Yemen.

US-Iran relations have worsened under Trump, who threatens to leave the nuclear deal unless it is rewritten to permanently block Tehran from building nuclear weapons and long-range missiles.

Asked if there was a case against Iran at the United Nations, Nebenzia answered: "No".

Ali Abdullah Saleh was Yemen's leader 1990-2012.
