Russia vetoes UN decision pressuring Iran over Yemen

By Reuters - Feb 26,2018 - Last updated at Feb 26,2018

NEW YORK — Russia on Monday vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that would have called out Iran for failing to prevent its weapons from falling into the hands of Yemen's Houthi group.

However, the 15-member Council unanimously adopted a rival, Russian-proposed resolution that did not mention Iran and that extended a targeted sanctions regime related to the civil war in Yemen.
