Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN - Ira­nian Am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions Gho­la­mali Khoshroo ad­dresses a UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil ses­sion on “Main­te­nance of In­ter­na­tional Peace and Se­cu­rity: Strength­en­ing Mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism and the Role of the United Na­tions” in New York on November 9, 2018.

Iran’s Am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions, Gho­la­mali Khoshroo, has slammed US uni­lat­er­al­ism and called on the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to con­demn Wash­ing­ton’s sanc­tions reim­posed on the Islamic Re­pub­lic.

Khoshroo made the re­marks in a let­ter to the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil in New York on Fri­day.

Iran’s UN en­voy stressed the ne­ces­sity of mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism for solv­ing global prob­lems, de­scrib­ing Wash­ing­ton’s uni­lat­eral with­drawal from in­ter­na­tional agree­ments, in­clud­ing the 2015 Iran nu­clear deal, as a chal­lenge to the world or­der.

“True mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism is founded on in­clu­sion in­stead of ex­clu­sion; co­op­er­a­tion in place of con­fronta­tion; equal­ity rather than in­equal­ity; rule of law in­stead of rule of power; pur­su­ing the com­mon goods and long-term objectives of all States, not short-sighted goals of only one State; and solv­ing dif­fer­ences peace­fully and justly, not vi­o­lently and un­fairly,” Khoshroo said.

“We need such an an­nual fo­rum to dis­cuss emerg­ing chal­lenges to mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism; the lat­est of which is the doc­trine of ‘with­drawal from in­ter­na­tional in­stru­ments and in­sti­tu­tions’ of a mem­ber of this coun­cil,” he said while re­fer­ring to the United States.

“This, among oth­ers, has re­sulted in its with­drawal from the Hu­man Rights Coun­cil, UNESCO, Paris Agree­ment, and the Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion,” Khoshroo noted. The per­ma­nent rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Iran to the UN also added that the global com­mu­nity “should not al­low the United States to pur­sue its uni­lat­eral, ar­ro­gant and self-cen­tered pol­icy which fo­cuses on con­tin­u­ing to re­order the world or­der to be

founded on power, not law.”
