UNSC meeting on Iran heavy blow to US: Tehran

Tehran, Jan 6, IRNA – The UN Security Council special session on Iran's recent developments was yet another heavy defeat for Donald Trump's administration, said Mahmoud Vaezi, Chief of Staff of Iran's President Office.

Members of the United Nations Security Council convened Friday evening on the request of the United States to address the human rights issue in Iran in the wake of demonstrations held in different parts of the country recently, mostly staged due to bad economic conditions.

'Once again, it was proved that all measures adopted by Trump and his administration against Iran and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) bode for nothing but frustration and isolation for them,' Vaezi told the Islamic Republic News Agency in an interview on Saturday.

'The decisive opposition expressed by a majority of the UNSC members towards US manipulation of the global body in a bid to rally pressure on Iran for recent demonstrations in the country is meant to be a significant incident, promising opening of a new chapter in the international relations,' he said.

A majority of the UNSC members have warned the United States against intervening in the internal affairs of other nations, including Iran and have called for the nuclear deal between Iran and the major world powers, known as the JCPOA, to be fully implemented, he stressed.

'The new US administration, in the face of Iran's principled stance, feels to be globally isolated more than ever,' Vaezi said.
