Iran envoy advises US to give up unilateralism

Tehran, Oct 9, IRNA – Iranian envoy to the UN said that the US is now more isolated than ever before and advised the country to give up unilateralism.

The US' unilateral policies on legal, international and environmental issues and the country's withdrawal from the international agreements, including the Iranian nuclear deal has increased the US isolation in the world, Permanent Representative of Iran to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo said.

He made the remarks following resignation of the United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

The official said that the US' unilateralism during Haley's tenure led to the US' isolation in the UN.

Despite Haley efforts in the UN, the Palestinian issue is still a top priority, he noted.

Haley resigned on Tuesday, and the US President Donald Trump accepted her resignation.

Nikki Haley is one of the anti-Iranian figures of the United States government, and she has always taken strong stance against Iran.

Trump had been present at the United Nations General Assembly early October and chaired a meeting at the UN Security Council, part of which was dedicated to the issue of Iran. Representatives from participating countries at the Security Council discussed critical remarks on the claims of Trump on Iran's nuclear deal.

Some analysts described the meeting as representing America's isolation in the world.
