Arab League denounces Iran’s recognition of Houthi rep.

Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit denounced on Tuesday Iran's recognition of a representative for the Houthi rebel group and the handover of Yemeni diplomatic headquarters in Tehran.

Aboul Gheit called the move a “flagrant” violation of diplomatic norms, Charter of the United Nations, the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and the relevant Security Council resolutions, particularly resolution no. 2216.

An official source at the General Secretariat of the League of Arab States said that such a step "reflects the Iranian determination to continue aggressive behavior, with the aim of destabilizing Yemen.”
