UAE IRANDubai: A senior official of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said on Saturday through his Twitter account that Iran is “a serial missile exporter in the region.”

Anwar Gargash, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said the defensive nature of Iran’s missile program has been exposed for being “a blatant lie”, Xinhua news agency reported.

Gargash stated in English (he usually tweets in Arabic) as “jittery Iranian reactions to evidence showing its culpability in the missile attacks on Saudi Arabia expected.”

“Iran’s missile programme is both aggressive and exportable,” added the minister, who regularly comments on geopolitical issues in the Middle East through social media channels.

The UAE and Saudi Arabia accuse Iran of providing and operating ballistic missiles for the Shiite Houthi rebels which they have been fighting militarily in a pan-Arab coalition since March 2015 in order to restore Yemen’s President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was ousted by Houthis in September 2014.

Earlier the week, the UAE called on international community “to more forcefully address Iran’s threat.”
