The Saudi letter to the UN coincided with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in NY.

A day earlier, the spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthi movement accused it of using Iranian-made missiles and said that Saudi Arabia reserved the right to respond to Iran when and how it deemed appropriate.

Halutz's colleagues were less circumspect about the possibility of facing a nuclear Iran, but took a variety of views on how to address that possibility.

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.
