We support the right of our ally Saudi Arabia to defend itself

The senior Iranian official added that the Saudi regime should "abandon adventurism and warmongering and engage in constructive political dialog with Yemen, which is its neighbor, while respecting the people's rights".

In Paris, the group's spokesman Shahin Ghobadi said in response to the Iranian official's statement that "the notion that the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran has funded ambassador Bolton or any other American officials is simply a lie and is a mere joke."In a speech at an opposition group event near Paris in July, Bolton expressed hope that Iran's government would be toppled "by 2019".

"It is not the first time Saudi Arabia enters into correspondence against Iran in order to cover up its defeats in Yemen, and the worldwide community is well aware of this fact", Khoshrou was quoted as saying by Iran's state TV.

Several Western countries, the United States and the UK in particular, are accused of being complicit in the Saudi-led aggression on Yemen as they supply the Riyadh regime with advanced weapons and military equipment.

This prompted the Saudi-led coalition to intervene militarily on March 26, 2015.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards on Tuesday denied Saudi Arabian accusations that Tehran provided the Houthi rebels in Yemen with ballistic capabilities, a day after Saudi Arabia threatened retaliation against the Islamic Republic for a barrage of missiles fired by Houthi rebels from Yemen. If not for them, who knows what danger Iran would have been able to inflict on the other people of the Middle East. This is the only way to stop the Houthis and the Iranian Regime from taking hold of Yemen.

"My concern is that they could be tempted to take some action directly against some Iranian target, and that any such course of action could escalate further". "He tried to convince me that Israel should strike Iran".

Khoshrou called on the Muslin world and the worldwide community to pressure Saudi Arabia to stop war in Yemen.

Analysts said that while Saudi Arabia will probably double down on its military campaign in Yemen to oust the Houthis from the capital Sanaa and reinstate President Abd Rabbu Mansour al-Hadi, it may continue to support mediation efforts.

Economists have played down the impact of the Houthi attacks on the Saudi economy, which Prince Mohammed is trying to wean off oil exports with a slate of reforms that include cutting energy subsidies and expanding the private sector.

In a Tuesday statement, Iran's Foreign Ministry said that the Saudi rulers can not cover up their repeated defeats in Yemen by levelling accusations against others.
