ISNA–In a reaction to U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley’s remarks at an emergency session of the Security Council, permanent mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations emphasized in a statement that the US envoy leveled tired and nonsensical allegations against Iran simply to distract from the global call to put an immediate end to the brutal mass murder in Gaza.
Here is the full text of the statement:
When the world cries over the massacre of dozens and the injuring of thousands of innocent unarmed Palestinian civilian protesters, including women and children, and while the Security Council has convened an emergency meeting to address this terrible crime, the United States Permanent Representative chose to talk about Iran, and NOT the Israeli regime’s appalling crimes.
The United States Permanent Representative Nikki Haley leveled tired and nonsensical allegations against Iran simply to distract from the global call to put an immediate end to the brutal mass murder in Gaza.
She doubled down on a policy of unconditional support for the Israeli regime and its illegal and aggressive practices that has become the obvious source of instability and insecurity in the region.
Yesterday, the US and the Israeli regime jointly celebrated the shameful violation of international law, including both international humanitarian and human rights law, as well as many UN resolutions, showing again that the United States is the primary enabler of 70 years of Israeli crimes, including the ongoing bloodbath in Gaza, and the remarks by the US representative cannot conceal this fact.
The Islamic Republic of Iran once again asks all nations to apply real pressure on the Israeli regime to immediately stop of killing of the innocent protesters in Gaza, the world’s largest prison.
