Iran slams UNSC silence on aid attack

The Iranian president slams the UN Security Council for approving new sanctions against Iran while “remaining silent” on an Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid convoy.

Speaking to Iranian state television on Sunday, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the UN double standard regarding the two issues indicated the Security Council is “losing its legitimacy.”

Ahmadinejad said the US secured Russia and China’s vote for new sanctions through deals but realized that it had “in fact gained nothing” through the resolution.

The Iranian president also said the Israeli attack on Freedom Flotilla, which killed 20 people, sparked “global hatred” against Tel Aviv and that the whole world was now “questioning Israel’s 60-year occupation of Palestine.”
