Iran plays spoilsport in Yemen

CAIRO: The ongoing Yemen peace talks in Kuwait have failed to make much headway because of Iran’s consistent attempts to derail the efforts, Yemeni Minister of Information Mohammed Qubaty has said.
Talking to Asharq Al-Awsat Qubaty exposed how Houthis and Yemen’s deposed President Ali Abdullah Saleh are coordinating with Iran and Al-Qaeda even as the talks are under way.
Counterterrorism special forces, which were formed by US forces during Saleh’s regime, are now unleashing terror, he said. “The coordination encompasses an array of terrorist attacks and political turbulences.”
