“While warning against the Israeli regime’s military adventurism against Iran for pursuing its malicious policies in the region, the Islamic Republic of Iran will respond to any threat posed by Iran in accordance with international law and the United Nations Charter. Reserving legitimate rights, Syed Iravani wrote in a January 3 letter to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres and Security Council President Kimihiro Ishikane that the government of Israel will, whenever it deems appropriate, protect its people and national security. It said it would protect its insured interests.
In a letter on “Israeli regime’s violation of international law against Iran,” the Iranian special envoy said the Zionist regime must comply with international law and be compelled to abandon its dangerous plans for the region.
Here is the text of the letter:
In the name of the most merciful and merciful God
I would like to draw your attention to Israel’s ongoing violations of international law and the United Nations Charter against the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Israeli regime has continued to threaten to use force against Iran, the latest being statements by regime officials openly threatening to use force against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.
On December 28, 2022, Benny Gantz, who resigned as defense minister in the Israeli government, declared that “Israel has significantly increased its preparedness in recent years and is preparing for a possible attack on Iran.” . Similarly, outgoing Israeli government Prime Minister Yair Lapid repeated the same hostile tone, stating, “The Israeli government will not allow a nuclear Iran. If we have to act, we will.” On December 27, 2022, Aviv Kohavi, the Israeli administration’s chief of staff, said that “the level of preparedness for operations in Iran has improved dramatically.”
These incendiary and belligerent statements, threatening to use force against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program, have come under the most stringent and intrusive nuclear verification, surveillance, and transparency measures in the IAEA’s history. It is a flagrant violation of international law and a violation of the Charter of the United Nations, specifically Article 2(4) of the Charter.
This is not the first time the Israeli regime has threatened to use force against Iran. As emphasized in an Iranian letter dated July 27, 2022 (S/2022/581), the regime is seeking to ensure that Iranian officials, scientists, civilians, and the peaceful nuclear infrastructure will be destroyed by this unjust person. bluntly and openly admit responsibility for terrorist and subversive operations committed against regime in Iran in recent years. In fact, such warmongering statements indicate that the Israeli regime is responsible for and must bear the consequences of all criminal and terrorist acts committed against Iran.
While warning against the Israeli regime’s military adventurism against Iran for pursuing its nefarious policies in the region, the Islamic Republic of Iran, in accordance with international law and the United Nations Charter, stands ready to accept any threat posed by Iran. We reserve the right to comply. We will protect the Israeli regime and protect the Israeli people and national security interests whenever we see fit.
The UN Security Council must uphold the Charter’s responsibilities in maintaining international peace and security and condemn the Israeli regime’s warmongering statements and malicious activities that constitute a genuine threat to international peace and security. not. This regime must be compelled to abide by international law and abandon its dangerous plans for the region.
I would appreciate it if you could circulate this letter as a document of the Security Council.
Your Excellency, please accept my assurance of the utmost care.
