Iran said Tuesday that the vetoing of a U.N. resolution that would have criticized its role in Yemen represented another setback for the United States. Russia vetoed a resolution at the U.N. Security Council Monday that would have expressed concern over Iran's failure to block supplies of missiles to Yemen's Houthi rebels and called for "additional measures". Later that month, a Security Council panel of experts released a report into missiles fired by the Houthis into Saudi Arabia, saying they were made in Iran.After vetoing the British resolution Monday, the Security Council unanimously adopted a Russian-drafted measure that extended the sanctions regime against Yemen for one year with no mention of Iran.
