Majid Takht-Ravanchi, in two identical letters to UN Secretary-General António Guterres and the rotating President of the UN Security Council Zhang Jun, vehemently censured the head of Israel’s so-called National Security Council, Eyal Holata, over his latest anti-Iran comments, Press TV reported.
Back on July 14, Holata openly threatened Iran with more terrorist operations, saying in an interview, “We (Israel) have rarely acted in Iran over the past year.”
“These statements clearly confirm the Israeli regime’s accountability for acts of sabotage and terrorist acts in Iran,” Iran’s UN envoy said.
Takht-Ravanchi maintained that such provocative remarks are not only a blatant violation of international law and the UN Charter, but also an open acknowledgment of the Israeli regime’s responsibility for terrorist operations and actions against Iranian officials, scientists, and civilian nuclear facilities in recent years.
Takht-Ravanchi censured the recent remarks by Israeli defense minister, Benny Gantz, who claimed during an interview at a Channel 13 conference in occupied Al-Quds on July 26 that the Tel Aviv regime has the ability to cause serious damage to Iran’s nuclear program.
Iran’s UN ambassador called upon the UN Security Council to condemn the war-mongering policies and malicious activities of the Israeli regime.
