Iranian VP Blasts UN's Biased Stance against Member States
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Vice-President for Parliamentary Affairs Seyed Mohammad Reza Mir-Tajeddini lashed out at the UN for its biased stances against certain member states, saying that the course of action and the positions of the world body have impaired the rights of such members.
"While the Security Council had been created for the establishment of security in the world, attempts made by certain states have turned it into an institution for trampling the rights of the nations," Mir-Tajeddini told FNA on Saturday.
He further described the US-proposed UN Security Council sanctions resolution against Iran as cruel, and meantime said that such measures indicate the imminent annihilation of the US and the West.
The resolution was passed with 12 votes after the UN Security Council's non-permanent member states Brazil and Turkey voted against the new sanctions and Lebanon abstained.
Mir-Tajeddini stressed that the US and western countries sought to approve the new sanctions resolution at the UNSC in an effort to divert the world public opinion from the latest crimes of the Zionist regime against the Gaza Freedom Flotilla and the massacre of 20 human rights activists.
He also lambasted the Security Council's negligence towards Israel's crime against the Palestinians and hundreds of human rights activists who were en rout to Gaza to deliver humanitarian aids to the Palestinian people.
The legislator also rapped the world body's heedlessness and inaction vis-à-vis the hundreds of the nuclear warheads possesses by the Israeli regime, which are a serious threat to the Middle East and the world.
Israel, the Middle East's sole nuclear power, possesses hundreds of nuclear warheads while it is not a signatory to the NPT or any other international convention. The Zionist regime has never allowed UN inspectors to visit its nuclear sites or arsenals.
