Iran’s foreign ministry hit back at American accusations that Tehran is prolonging the conflict in Yemen, saying that Washington must be held accountable for “crimes” in the war-torn country, following a move by the Biden administration to sanction two Houthi commanders. Saeed Khatibzadeh, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, rejected on Wednesday the US claim that Iran has been fanning “the flames of the conflict” in Yemen and lashed out at Washington for selling weapons to the Saudi-led coalition, calling its role in the war a “blood trade”. “The Americans, who must be held accountable for their crimes in Yemen for six years, cannot make groundless accusations against others as a plaintiff,” he said in a statement.
