Iran Violated Yemen Arms Embargo, U.N. Experts Say

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/12/world/middleeast/iran-yemen-saudi-arabia-arms-embargo-un.html

"A United Nations panel has concluded that Iran violated an arms embargo imposed on Yemen by failing to prevent the Houthi rebels in that war-ravaged nation from obtaining Iranian missiles, including one fired hundreds of miles into Saudi Arabia two months ago.

The findings, in a report given to the United Nations Security Council this week, could add weight to American and Saudi efforts to ostracize Iran with accusations that the Iranians are engaged in destabilizing behavior in the Middle East."

An arms-embargo provision of that resolution requires all member states to “take the necessary measures to prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer to” designated Yemeni combatants including the Houthis.

There was no immediate comment from Iran on the United Nations report, which was prepared by experts for a Council panel responsible for monitoring compliance with the arms embargo."

So it appears that you can't trust the Mullahs in Tehran to keep their word. But of course this couldn't possibly reflect on the previous US administrations agreements with those same scoundrels, could it?

2. Blockade Iran

Then board and search all of their ships going to and from their country and countries of interest. Does this not sound like a solution?

8. The Security Council in not the whole UN.

Kuwait is the current presidency of the UNSC. BFF's of the Saudi Kingdom. Kuwait has troops in Yemen helping the Saudi.
