White House Spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre answered journalists' questions at the daily press conference.

Recalling that 1.1 million rounds of ammunition believed to have been sent by Iran to Houthi militias in Yemen in violation of a United Nations (UN) Security Council resolution were seized by the United States in December, Jean-Pierre confirmed that these ammunition were given to Ukraine.


"In violation of international law, the naval forces of the US Central Command seized these munitions from Iran's Revolutionary Guards to militant groups in Yemen," Jean-Pierre said.

"We will continue to take steps to support Ukraine's struggle for freedom from tyranny and to prevent Iran's destabilizing activities in the region and beyond," Jean-Pierre said, adding that Iran's action was a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2216.


Jean-Pierre said that the US ammunition aid to Ukraine is proof that the United States stands by its promise on this issue.

The US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced in a statement that 1.1 million rounds of ammunition identified as having been sent by Iran to Yemen were seized in December from a wooden sailing ship and that the 7.62-millimeter rounds were "being transported to Ukraine."

CENTCOM noted that the United States gained ownership of the munitions through a confiscation order by the Department of Justice on July 20.
