Security Council not meeting its obligations: Speaker

IRNA- Speaker of the Iranian parliament said that many wars in the region did not have the resolution of the Security Council, even US unilateral sanctions against Iran and Russia have not the resolution of the Security Council; ‘in Iran’s view, it is not meeting its obligations’.

On the second conference of heads of parliaments of six countries of Iran Pakistan, Turkey, China, Russia and Afghanistan titled ‘The challenges of terrorism and inter-regional communications’, Ali Larijani said, ‘Holding such conferences have the different reasons which we look at the international scene for reasons, while commending the Iranian president’s presence at the conference.’

He considered one of the reasons for holding such meetings as the failure of the Security Council to do its duties, adding, ‘Unfortunately, today the Security Council does not fulfill its obligations. Many of the wars in the region don’t have the resolution of the Security Council, even the US unilateral sanctions against Iran and Russia have not the resolution of the Security Council, and in our view it does not do its job.’

He affirmed that the unilateral approach adopted by the American president in recent years has resulted in the destruction of human values. In practice, Trump’s behavior has crushed human rights systems and makes states frustrated with their global management.

‘America and those around them are responsible for spreading terrorism; they say we fight terrorism, but they use the means of terrorism in practice,’ Larijani continued.
