Iravani: Iran to react more resolutely if Zionist entity commits military aggression again

New York, SANA- Iran’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN Amir-Saeid Iravani has said, “Should the Zionist entity commit any military aggression again, Iran’s response will assuredly and decisively be stronger, and more resolute.”

Iravani’s remarks came in a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and UN Security Council President Vanessa Frazier.

“The military action was in the exercise of Iran’s inherent right to self-defense as outlined in Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, and in response to the Israeli recurring military aggressions,” the Iranian diplomat said in his letter.

He added “Regrettably, the United Nations Security Council has failed in its duty to maintain international peace and security, allowing the Israeli regime to transgress red lines and violate the fundamental principles of international law. Such violations have exacerbated tensions in the region and threatened regional and international peace and security.”

Iravani noted that as a responsible Member of the United Nations, the Islamic Republic of Iran is committed to the purposes and principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, and international law, and reiterates its consistent position that it does not seek escalation or conflict in the region.

He added “While warning about any further military provocations by the Israeli regime, the Islamic Republic of Iran reaffirms its unwavering determination to defend its people, national security and interests, sovereignty, and territorial integrity.”
