Saudi Arabia on Thursday denied threatening a cut-off of humanitarian funding to pressure the United Nations to remove the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen from a blacklist of child rights violators.

"We did not use threats or intimidation and we did not talk about funding," Saudi Ambassador Abdullah al-Mouallimi told reporters.
