Iran raps UN inaction on sovereignty violation


The secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) has slammed the UN’s inaction over the violation of the national sovereignty of countries.

Ali Shamkhani made the remarks during a meeting with the Deputy UN Secretary General Jan Eliasson on Wednesday, adding that UN’s inaction has called into question its charter.

He also noted that this situation has, in turn, led to the emergence of terrorist groups.

Shamkhani further highlighted Iran’s readiness to send humanitarian aid to Syria.

Eliasson, for his part, called terrorism a complicated global issue, noting that the fight against terrorism requires active participation of all UN member states. He also emphasized that the UN support for Iraq and Syria will continue.

This comes as the ISIL terrorists currently control large areas of territory across Syria and Iraq. They have committed terrible atrocities in both countries, including mass executions and beheading of local residents as well as foreign nationals.

Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of nearly 200,000 people, according to reports.
