|Tehran criticizes Canada, U.S., Israel for opposing Iran’s anti-violence proposal||
TEHRAN – Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaee, has strongly criticized the remarks of the Zionist regime, Canada, and the U.S. against Iran’s proposal initiated by President Hassan Rouhani against violence and extremism, the English service of IRNA reported on Saturday.
“In that session, the Zionist regime’s representative first made harsh remarks against Iran’s proposal and I gave appropriate response to him,” Khazaee said.
“The representatives of the U.S. and Canada also lodged accusations against Iran and blatantly expressed their dissatisfaction about the international community’s affirmation of Iran’s proposal,” he added.
Khazaee said that the discontent of some countries with the approval of Iran’s proposal is interpreted as their opposition to the Islamic Republic’s success in the international arena.
Iran has offered to host an international conference on a UN resolution which was recently adopted based on President Hassan Rouhani’s 'World Against Violence and Extremism' proposal.
The UN General Assembly on Wednesday overwhelmingly voted to approve the proposal, which calls on all nations across the globe to denounce violence and extremism.
Rouhani had made the proposal in an address to the UN Disarmament Conference in New York on September 25.
