Iran asks intl. community to stand against US arbitrary acts

TEHRAN, Nov. 17 (MNA) – Iran’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo said there is no precedent for a permanent member of the Security Council to punish other members of the United Nations for compliance with the Council’s resolutions.

In a meeting with secretary-general of the United Nations on Friday, Khoshroo asked António Guterres to take a stand against the violation of law and imposition of illegal sanctions against Iran.

Touching upon the unilateral withdrawal of the United States from nuclear deal and threatening of member states who ooperate with Iran, Khoshroo said "it is unprecedented in the history of the United Nations that a permanent member of the Security Council punishes the rest of UN member states due to their compliance with the Council’s resolutions!"

The international community must stand against these arbitrary and extrajudicial acts, he added.

He also called the Saudi Arabia's attacks on Yemen "a deep humanitarian crisis", calling for an end to this highly destructive or damaging war and the beginning of political reconciliation between the parties in Yemen.

In response to the need for multilateralism against global challenges, Guterres, for his part, expressed hope that the war in Yemen would soon be ended and this humanitarian tragedy would end as soon as possible.

Khoshroo gifted a pictorial hand-woven carpet, depicting the image of António Guterres, to secretary-general, to be showcased at the UN exhibition.

Guterres pointed to the depth of Iranian culture and praised poetry, painting, architecture, and carpet weaving in Iran.
