Iran writes to UN over Israel’s efforts to implicate Iran in terrorist acts

TEHRAN – The Iranian ambassador to the United Nations has said that the Zionist regime’s efforts to implicate Iran in the recent terrorist attacks on Israeli diplomatic targets are part of its “war game” against the Islamic Republic.  
According to Al Arabiya, Ambassador Mohammad Khazaii made the remarks in a letter to the UN Security Council on February 22 in response to the Zionist regime’s claims that Iran had been involved in the recent bombings in several countries, including Thailand, India, and Georgia.  
Bombers targeted staff at Israel’s embassies in India and Georgia on February 13, wounding four people. 
Three explosions also rattled the Thai capital of Bangkok on February 14, in which five people were wounded.  
In his letter, Khazaii accused Israel of involvement in the assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists and wrote, “These operations as well as attributing the violent acts are part of the general war game waged by this regime against Iran.” 
Israel has made “unfounded allegations and distortions” against Iran over the recent attacks and bombings, the letter said. 
Iran “categorically rejects the allegations concerning any involvement of its officials or organs whatsoever in alleged recent terrorist operations against Israeli targets in a number of countries, namely Thailand, India, Georgia, or Azerbaijan,” Khazaii wrote. 
Iran has “suffered from terrorist acts, including assassinations of (its) nuclear scientists, due to the tacit and explicit support extended by the Israeli regime to terrorist groups,” Khazaii added. 
The Iranian ambassador also stated that Israel has carried out “covert operations, cyber warfare, psychological war, and assassination of nuclear scientists” and has issued threats of military action against Iran.  
“Regrettably, the impunity with which the (Israeli) regime has been allowed to carry out its crimes thus far has emboldened it to continue and even increase its blatant defiance of the most basic and fundamental principles of international law and the United Nations Charter,” the letter added.
