Zarif slams CENTCOM’s destabilizing activities in Yemen

April 17, 2019

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday slammed the United States Central Command (CENTCOM)’s destabilizing activities in Yemen, saying even Congress is opposed to CENTCOM’s action in Yemen but certain Arab countries intoxicated with petrol dollars are more powerful in entangling the U.S. in unending wars. 

“Even the U.S. Congress wants to put an end to @CENTCOM's destabilizing activities in #Yemen,” Zarif tweeted.

“But petrofinanced #NetanyahuFirsters and their enabler in the White House will continue—with American lives and against U.S. interests—to push for forever wars,” he added.

Earlier on Wednesday, Donald Trump vetoed a bill passed by Congress to end support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, describing the resolution as an “unnecessary” and “dangerous” attempt to weaken his constitutional powers.
