(Persia Digest) – Iran’s permanent mission to the UN issued a statement on Wednesday announcing that as the biggest violator of international law the US is now abusing its presidency of the UN Security Council to further its unilateral agenda.
The statement was issued in response to the announcement of Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN. It adds: “By abusing its presidency of the UNSC and its permanent membership of the SC, the US is now seeking to impose its unilateral decisions on the SC. This can only be described as threating and bullying on an international level.”
Persia Digest reports Ambassador Nikki Haley announced on Tuesday that President Donald Trump will be leading a meeting of heads of states at the UN on Iran in late September.
The statement continues: “Such a move is against the UN Charter regulations. Such an irresponsible, dangerous precedent will undermine the credibility of the UN and the Security Council more than ever.”
It adds: “The US efforts to highjack the SC meeting on the ME which has been taking place for a decade and using it against Iran at the end of this month is a clear example of such abuse of the UN.”
The statement stresses: “Although the IAEA has confirmed in more than ten reports that Iran has complied with its obligations under the JCPOA accord and UNSCR 2231, the US has not only withdrawn from the accord illegally, but it is also openly asking all UN member countries to violate the UNSCR 2231 and even threatens to punish them if they abide by it.”
