The missiles were fired at the main airport in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, Haley said. "Only Iran makes the Qiam", Seal said.

On the same day as Haley made his accusations, Farhan Haq, the spokesman for the United Nations secretary general, said the existing reports do not show what country the missiles were manufactured.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stood before missile remnants that she claimed were covered in Iranian "fingerprints" on Thursday while laying out what she called "irrefutable evidence" that Tehran has violated its worldwide obligations by militarily supporting rebels in Yemen.

In a presentation at the headquarters to the Defence Intelligence Agency in Washington, the United States envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, said: "As you know we do not often declassify this type of military equipment recovered from these attacks but today we are taking an extraordinary step of presenting it here in an opening setting".

"When I was based at the United Nations, I saw this show and what it begat...", Zarif said on his Twitter account on Thursday night.

The President has called the deal "one of the worst" and "the most one-sided transaction the United States has ever entered into", and he reiterated his sentiments when he announced the USA would not certify the deal yet - he said the "rogue regime" of Iran is only perpetuating terrorism around the world, and is becoming more aggressive in doing so.

Resolution 2231, which enshrined the landmark nuclear deal with world powers, calls on Iran not to undertake activities related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear bombs, including launches using such technology.

The US yesterday revealed evidence which it says proves Iran is supplying Yemen's Houthis with weapons which are used to attack Saudi Arabia. The statement went on: "The U.S. government has an agenda and is constantly at work to deceive the public into believing the cases they put together to advance it".

"These accusations seek also to cover up for the Saudi war crimes in Yemen, with the USA complicity, and divert global and regional attention from the stalemate war of aggression against the Yemenis", reads a statement from the Iranian Mission to the United Nations.

Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back at USA claims over the Islamic Republic's missile support for Yemen.

Its ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region. Likewise, the USA ambassador to the United Nations last month called for worldwide action against Iran over this missile launch.

"These hyperboles" serve the U.S. agenda in the Middle East including the administration's "unbridled support for the Israeli regime", Miryousefi added. She further said that its components included stamps of Iranian manufacturers. The U.S. and Iran also agreed to their own terms, along with terms penned with other nations.
