British Prime Minister Theresa May attacked Iran's support of terrorism Wednesday during the UN General Assembly in New York.


"The Iranian regime has for years been a source of concern for the international community," May stated.


She added that Iran's deployment of ballistic missiles and its support for Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Houthi rebels in Yemen is a breach of international consensus.


Regarding the situation in Syria, she said, "The Assad regime must be held accountable and held responsible for the use of chemical weapons."
