SANAA (Anadolu Agency) – Yemeni Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi on Saturday accused Iran of sending arms to militants in his country.

"We have evidence that some Iranian parties negatively interfere in Yemen's affairs by sending weapons," al-Qirbi told the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper. He, however, did not clarify the nature of the evidence.

The top Yemeni diplomat said his country was looking forward to an expected visit to Yemen by Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian to reach to the core of Iran's attitude toward Yemen.

Al-Qirbi voiced hope that Iran would stop interfering in his country's internal affairs and to suspend support for the Shiite Houthi militants.

He went on to say that Yemen had seized an Iranian ship carrying arms bound to Houthis in Yemen in mid-2013.

This is not the first time Yemen's top diplomat accuses Iran of providing Houthis with arms. He had accused the country of giving arms to Houthis last November.

Tehran has not officially commented on the accusations, but Iran always denies interference Yemen's affairs.

The Shiite Houthi movement first appeared in 1992, making Yemen's northern Saada province its main base of operations.

Several rounds of subsequent fighting between the Shiite militant group and the Yemeni army have claimed many lives on both sides.
