Iranian Envoy Raps Israeli PM’s UN Speech

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations lashed out at the Israeli regime’s prime minister for delivering a speech “full of lies” as the UN General Assembly.

“Iran-phobia runs rampant at UN. The Israeli regime PM’s speech was full of lies on Iran,” Majid Takht Ravanchi said in a post on his Twitter account on Monday.

The remarks came after the Israeli premier, Naftali Bennett, used his first speech to the world body, to solely try to tarnish Iran to the exclusion of even the Palestinian issue.

He alleged that Iran’s nuclear energy program had crossed all “red lines,” adding that the country sought to control the Middle East region under a “nuclear umbrella.”

In response, Takht Ravanchi wrote, “That regime (Israel) is in no position to discuss our peaceful program when it has hundreds of nuclear warheads.”

Despite its constant denial, Tel Aviv has been running a notorious and highly secretive nuclear weapons program—the only one in the region—that has provided it with at least 200 non-conventional warheads, Press TV reported.

The Iranian envoy also said Bennett’s intentional refusal to include the slightest reference in his address to the Palestinian issue, “illustrates a determination to deprive Palestinian rights.”
