Iran: US primary enabler of Israeli crimes against Palestinians
Iran's Permanent Mission to the United Nations in a statement described US as enabler of the Zionist regime's 70-year crimes against Palestinians.
The mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations in a statement deplored the United States permanent representative's allegatuions against Iran in her speech at the United Nations Security Council meeting on Palestine.
The statement said while the whole world is watching the massacre of defenseless Palestinian civilians in the occupied Palestine and the UN Security Council has convened a session to discuss Isreal's horrible crimes, US envoy decided to talk about Iran and not about the crimes happening in Palestine.
The full text of Iranian mission's statement follows:
When the world cries over the massacre of dozens and the injuring of thousands of innocent unarmed Palestinian civilian protesters, including women and children, and while the Security Council has convened an emergency meeting to address this terrible crime, the United States Permanent Representative chose to talk about Iran, and NOT the Israeli regime's appalling crimes.
The United States Permanent Representative leveled tired and nonsensical allegations against Iran simply to distract from the global call to put an immediate end to the brutal mass murder in Gaza.
She doubled down on a policy of unconditional support for the Israeli regime and its illegal and aggressive practices that has become the obvious source of instability and insecurity in the region.
Yesterday, the US and the Israeli regime jointly celebrated the shameful violation of international law, including both international humanitarian and human rights law, as well as many UN resolutions, showing again that the United States is the primary enabler of 70 years of Israeli crimes, including the ongoing bloodbath in Gaza, and the remarks by the US representative cannot conceal this fact.
The Islamic Republic of Iran once again asks all nations to apply real pressure on the Israeli regime to immediately stop of killing of the innocent protesters in Gaza, the world's largest prison.
On December 6, 2017 US President Donald Trump decided to relocate US diplomatic mission from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds and to recognize Quds as capital city of the Zionist regime of Israel.
Thousands of Palestinians on Monday protested against US relocation of embassy from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds and also on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Israel occupation.
Iranian Foreign Ministry also in a statement slammed US President Donald Trump decision to recognize Holy Quds as the Zionist regime capital, saying Quds is the integral part of Palestine.
