Iran urges UNSC to stand up against US

New York, Aug 13, IRNA – Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations in a press release on Thursday called on the Security Council to withstand the US illegal move to extend arms embargo on Iran, saying that the US draft resolution is aimed at addressing the US domestic politics.

The US draft resolution, presented in gross violation of the Security Council Resolution 2231 is not related to the maintenance of international peace and security whatsoever, the press release said.

It has targeted the integrity, authority and credibility of the Security Council, and by extension, the United Nations as well as multilateralism, rule of law and diplomacy, it added.

To satisfy its deep addiction to imposing sanctions and to justify its irresponsible behavior in the Council, the US is baselessly accusing Iran of regional instability, while its own meddling, malicious practices, divisive policies, unquenchable appetite to export its deadly weapons to regional countries as well as the presence of a large number of its forces in the Middle East and their invasions and false flag and disruptive operations are the main sources of instability, insecurity and human suffering in this region, Iran's mission said.

The press release reiterated that the Security Council members are expected to resist the United States' illegal and ill-intentioned move, reject the abuse and manipulation of the Council's work, and prove that this body is able to support the JCPOA it has endorsed; protect Resolution 2231 it has adopted unanimously; and ensure its authority and credibility.
