|Iran calls on UN to condemn assassination of Iranian diplomat in Yemen||
TEHRAN – Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaee, has called on the UN Security Council to take action against terrorist attacks in the wake of the recent assassination of an Iranian diplomat in Yemen.
“It is crystal clear that the terrorists responsible for this crime have been influenced by extremism and blind violence and know no limit to their criminal acts even against the diplomatic missions of other countries, which enjoy political immunity under the international conventions,” Khazaee wrote in separate letters addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and President of the Security Council Zeid Ra'ad Zeid al-Hussein on Monday.
He also welcomed the UN condemnation of the bomb attacks outside the Iranian Embassy in the Lebanese capital Beirut last November, stating that Tehran calls upon the UN Security Council to strongly condemn the assassination of the Iranian diplomat in Yemen.
Khazaee further urged the Security Council to obligate all its member states to help identify the perpetrators of the killing, adopt necessary measures to prevent funding terrorists, and offer full cooperation to punish the assassins and their supporters.
