Foreign Ministry rejects OIC statement against Tehran

Iran’s Foreign Ministry’s Bahram Qassemi rejected an anti-Iran statement issued by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) "under Saudi influence" following a meeting in the Saudi city of Jeddah, which took place in the absence of Tehran's representatives.

He criticized Riyadh for denying Iranian delegates entry visas for OIC summits, saying such statements "are compiled and released unilaterally and unjustly under pressure from Saudi Arabia."

Article 7 of the OIC communiqué, which was issued on Wednesday, repeats the baseless allegation that Iran provides Yemen's Houthi movement with missiles – a claim strongly rejected by both Tehran and Sana'a.

Qassemi further said the countries involved in acts of aggression against Yemeni people resort to such statements in an attempt to cover up their criminal acts and divert world public opinion from the realities on the ground in the war-ravaged country.
