>> These torched and battered fragments of metal and circuitry are the remnants of what the U.S. military says is Iranian weaponry. On Thursday, America's envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said this was evidence Tehran is supporting Houthi fighters in Yemen in violation of a UN arms embargo.
>> These weapons were supplied by the Iranian regime. The evidence is undeniable.>> Iran denies supplying the Houthis with such weapons. The Pentagon points to what it says are the logos of Iranian Defense firms on some of these fragments as proof that Iran is the source of Houthi arms.
The Department of Defense said the weaponry was recovered by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emerites, and shared with the U.S.. Reuters got an early look at the material inside a military hanger near Washington DC.>> Behind me, right over here, is an oxidizer tank. It's part of a missile.

Other items on this room include the remnants of a drone, an anti-tank missile even an exploding boat that employed Iranian navigation system.

>> Iran's regional rival Saudi Arabia has been bombing what Riyadh says are Iranian backed Houthi militants in the country. Without placing blame, the UN has drawn attention to the mounting civilian death toll from air strikes. The UN has banned weapon shipments to various armed factions in Yemen. And, under an international accord limiting Iran's nuclear program, Tehran is prohibited from supplying international arms without approval from the UN Security Council.
Haley said the U.S. plans to offer this display at the UN to show Iran is violating its international obligations. U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly assailed the Iran Nuclear Court.>> They have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement.>> And earlier this year decided Tehran was in violation of the Obama-era agreement.
But divisions remain within his cabinet over whether to withdraw from the deal completely.>> Necessary, believe me.
