TEHRAN, Sep. 20 (Press Shia) – Iran’s First Counsellor and Alternative Representative to the UN blasted anti-Iran remarks by Israeli PM Netanyahu, saying a regime founded on occupation and terror has no right to point fingers at others.
“Instead of spreading lies, blaming others, and trying to deceive the public opinion, the Israeli representative should have explained to the General Assembly why the regime, during its short life, has attacked all of its neighboring countries without exception, and has even mounted attacks on countries outside the region by waging over 15 wars,” Iran’s First Counsellor and Alternative Representative to the United Nations Hossein Maleki said, addressing the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.
He was reacting to Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks at the UN session where he called for a stop to Iran’s nuclear deal, development of ballistic missiles, and its actions in the region.
“He should have explained instead why this regime, as the greatest example of state terrorism, continues its military and arms support to ISIL terrorists, and refuses to sign up to tens of General Assembly resolutions or some 100 Security Council resolutions,” Maleki stressed.
Slamming Israel for having taken lives and imprisoning thousands of Palestinians, the Iranian UN envoy said that the regime cannot conceal its bloody hands by wearing “white gloves”.
Maleki further lashed out at Israel for refusing to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and to place its nuclear facilities and activities under the safeguard of the IAEA, as well as for opposing the establishment of a nuclear weapon-free zone in the Middle East.
