Iran says Macron acting like ‘Trump’s lapdog’ on Middle East

A top adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says that French President Emmanuel Macron is acting like US President Donald Trump’s “lapdog” regarding Middle East policy.

“To sustain its international credibility, France should not blindly follow the Americans … The French president is now acting as Trump’s lapdog,” Ali Akbar Velayati is quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency.

Velayati also slams the US for accusing the Islamic Republic of supplying Houthi rebels in Yemen with arms.

“This claim shows she lacks basic scientific knowledge and decency,” Velayati says, adding that American UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is like Trump in saying “baseless, ridiculous things.”

“Iran has not supplied Yemen with any missile,” he says.
