The Iranian representative to the United Nations, Majid Takht Rawanji, denied any Iranian involvement in the recent attacks on US bases in Iraq.
Majid Takht Rawanji considered that the US air strikes on Iraqi forces were a “violation of international law.”
“The American permanent representative to the United Nations tried to accuse the Islamic Republic of Iran of supporting the so-called non-governmental armed groups in Iraq,” Rawangi said, stressing that “Tehran categorically rejected these accusations, as in the past.”
He added, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has not participated, directly or indirectly, in any armed attack by any entity or individual, against the United States in Iraq, and therefore we reject any allegations that Iran participated, explicitly or implicitly, in an attack on the forces.” The Americans are in Iraq, and that such accusations are totally baseless, have no legal consideration, and are null. “
And Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations continued: “The Islamic Republic of Iran condemns the unlawful military attack launched by the American forces on the Iraqi forces on the Syrian-Iraqi border on February 25, 2021,” noting that “such dangerous actions are a violation of the sovereignty of the countries of the region,” And a clear violation of international law and the Charter of the United Nations. “
Majid Takht Rawanji also explained that “this issue exacerbates the tense situation in the region, and in practice it only serves the interests of terrorist groups in these countries, which must be stopped,” calling for “the message to be recorded as a document of the UN Security Council.”
