Majid Takht Ravanchi made the remarks on Wednesday after enumerating the long list of the Israeli regime’s violations of international nuclear regulations and its terrorist activities targeting the Islamic Republic’s nuclear work and professionals.
“The Israeli regime continues to be a non-signatory to the NPT (nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty),” he told a UN General Assembly session.
“It (the regime) has consistently and vehemently refused to join the NPT and adhere to the IAEA (the International Atomic Energy Agency)’s comprehensive safeguards,” he added.
The Israeli regime has, thanks to steadfast support on the part of its biggest ally the United States, consistently avoided all sorts of accountability to the world body. This comes despite the regime’s being the Middle East’s sole possessor of nuclear weapons, including hundreds of atomic warheads.
Tel Aviv has also assassinated as many as seven Iranian nuclear scientists, including Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, whom the regime subjected to targeted killing in 2020, and targeted Iran’s nuclear installations on several occasions with terrorist crimes.
“The assassination of Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh on November 27, 2020, is following the pattern of terrorist acts that began over a decade ago with the assassinations of several Iranian nuclear scientists in 2010, 2011, and 2012,” Takht Ravanchi said.
“Iran’s peaceful nuclear facilities have been under sabotage attacks and our nuclear scientists have been the target of assassination by the Zionist regime,” noted the envoy.
The international community and relevant international organizations, and in particular the United Nations, must unequivocally condemn these heinous acts of terrorism, the official concluded.
