Iran FM discusses Gaza, Red Sea with UN chief

TEHRAN, Jan. 24 (MNA) – Iran's top diplomat discussed the new developments in the besieged Gaza Strip and the Red Sea with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the sidelines of the Security Council meeting on the Middle East in New York.

Amir-Abdollahian said he exchanged views on Tuesday night with Guterres on ways to send humanitarian aid to the north and south of Gaza, stopping the genocide and war crimes there, as well as the developments in the Red Sea.

He said that he also shared views and declared Iran’s stance on the US and British behavior in the West Asia region and their military activities against Yemen.

Amir-Abdollahian clarified that using the opportunity of the Security Council meeting, where a number of foreign ministers were invited, he discussed the positions of Iran regarding the ways out of this crisis, stopping the genocide and specifically reminded America's responsibility in the crisis by supporting the Israeli regime's genocide.

He said the discussions were focused on how to stop the military attacks and the killing of civilians in Gaza and the West Bank, as well as the ideas of how to manage Palestine after the war but Amir-Abdollahian said he reiterated Iran’s stance that Palestinians should determine and decide their own future.

He also said about his meeting with his French and Malaysian counterparts.

“Today was an opportunity to talk and consult with some of the foreign ministers. The meeting and discussion with the foreign ministers of France and Malaysia both included positive, forward-looking and constructive discussions, especially in bilateral areas”, he noted.

Iran's foreign minister said that the meetings with his counterparts in New York were largely focused on regional issues, including the crisis in West Asia, specifically Gaza.
