Iran: Nothing but isolation resulted for US in UNSC meeting

FNA- Iranian President’s Chief of Staff Mahmoud Vaezi underlined that the UN Security Council’s Friday meeting on the recent unrests in Iran bore no fruits for Washington but desperation and isolation.

“It was proved again that the result of the Trump administration’s attempts against Iran and the (2015) nuclear deal is desperation and isolation,” Vaezi said on Saturday.

“During the meeting, most UNSC members advised the US not to interfere in other countries and Iran’s internal affairs and urged full implementation of the nuclear deal,” he added.

Vaezi said that the UNSC’s last night meeting was another victory for the Iranian people and a new and heavy defeat for US President Donald Trump’s administration.

In relevant remarks earlier today, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined that the UNSC dismissed the US blatant attempts to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs, and said that the move by the UNSC was another defeat for the Trump administration.

“The UNSC rebuffed the US’ naked attempt to hijack its mandate. Majority emphasized the need to fully implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and to refrain from interfering in internal affairs of others. Another FP [foreign policy] blunder for the Trump administration,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter account Saturday.

In his message, Zarif referred to Iran’s statement on the situation in the Middle East. The statement was submitted on Friday by Iran’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshrou.

In a series of tweets about Iran over the past week, Trump hailed the week-long protests, which have aired a mixture of economic and political grievances against the “corrupt” Iranian government. Trump said the opposition “will see great support from the United States at the appropriate time.” He has also used the opportunity to once again attack the “terrible” nuclear deal signed by Barack Obama in 2015.
