Iran Slams UN Security Council Silence Towards Syrian People Suffering Due to Coercive Measures

Iran has criticized the UN for its silence with regard to the suffering of Syrian civilians, writes SANA.

Iran’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi, slammed the silence of the UN Security Council towards the suffering of Syrian people linked to the Western unilateral coercive measures imposed on them.

In his speech, during a UN Security Council meeting on “Protection of civilians in armed conflicts,” Ravanchi said that the repercussions of these unilateral inhuman measures against Syria seriously affect the lives of people as they prevent importing humanitarian goods, including food and medicines.

The Iranian diplomat underlined the necessity of stopping such measures.

He also pointed to the inhuman and illegal behaviors of the Zionist entity in the occupied Palestinian territories during the past decades. These practices include the widespread ethnic cleansing, demolishing houses, seizing the Palestinians’ properties, the illegitimate siege imposed on the Gaza Strip and the massacres against the civilians, including innocent children and women, as they are considered clear examples of the Israeli war crimes.
