Finally, I want to draw the Council’s attention to the events of June 28, when U.S. and partner forces interdicted a vessel off the coast of Yemen containing Iranian arms bound for the Houthis. The vessel’s illicit cargo included 200 RPGs, more than 1,700 AK rifles, 21 surface-to-air and land-attack missiles, several anti-tank missiles, and other advanced weapons and missiles. Yemen does not need more arms. Iran must stop its effort to arm the Houthis, which only prolongs the conflict.
