Tehran: It is not in the capacity of UNSC to discuss events in Iran

New York, SANA-Iran’s permanent representative to the UN Gholamali Khoshroo affirmed on Friday that discussions on what is going on in Iran is not in the capacity of the UN Security council because it is an internal issue.

Khoshroo, during a UNSC emergent session to discuss the situation in Iran, added that the invitation of the US to hold such session is an attempt “to escape forwards after it has lost its credibility.”

“The US invitation to hold the session is a violation of the UNSC authority that failed to assume its responsibility in preserving the international peace and security,” Khoshroo said.

He affirmed that the Iranian government respects the rights of its citizens, but there are signs that the acts of riot which took place last week have been stirred by members directed and provoked by Europe and the US.
