China Raps US Obstruction of UNSC’s Action on Israeli Crimes

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The foreign minister of China criticized the US and the Western governments for their double standards regarding the Zionist regime’s policies and for obstructing the UN Security Council’s measures in condemnation of the Israeli atrocities.

In a telephone conversation on Monday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amirabdollahian discussed the latest developments in the region and the course of bilateral ties between Beijing and Tehran.

Wang Yi outlined China’s views about the regional developments, saying Beijing strongly condemns the Israeli attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus as a violation of international rules and principles.

He added, “We, in the Security Council, have always supported the just demands of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the face of obstruction by the US government and the adoption of double standards by Western member states of the UN Security Council in condemning the actions of Israel.”

Wang Yi noted that he has briefed his US counterpart in a phone call on the principled stance of the Iranian side and steadily pushed for establishing peace in the region and a ceasefire in Gaza.

The Chinese foreign minister underscored that Iran and China are strategic partners, stressing that his country views Iran’s policies and stances regarding all issues as important.

For his part, Amirabdollahian briefed Wang Yi on the diplomatic efforts and the legitimate action of the Iranian armed forces in the face of the Israeli regime’s audacity and its bombing of the consular section of Iran’s embassy in Damascus.

The Iranian foreign minister further said, "We have clearly warned the White House that if the Zionist regime dares to repeat terrorist attacks against Iran's interests and security, Tehran's response and its next move will be decisive, immediate and extensive.”

In the early hours of Sunday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force launched tens of missiles and drones in retaliation for the Israeli regime’s April 1 airstrike that killed seven Iranian military commanders and advisers in Syria.

The IRGC commander said authentic reports about the Iranian missiles that have hit the Israeli targets indicate that the retaliatory operation has been considerably more successful than expected.
