UNSC Palestine Stance Criticized

Ambassador to the United Nations criticized the UN Security Council for failing to show the necessary “political will” to defend the Palestinian people’s rights.
“The Security Council, due to a lack of political will, is not capable of fulfilling its duties within the framework of the organization’s Charter to defend the rights of the Palestinian people,” Gholam Ali Khoshroo said at a Security Council meeting on Friday.
He reaffirmed the Non-Aligned Movement’s support for Palestinians’ causes and their rights and stressed the importance of establishing an independent Palestinian state, Press TV reported.
Iran holds the rotating presidency of the NAM.
The envoy pointed to Israel’s crimes and its “racist and illegal” policies on the Palestinian people and said Tel Aviv committed war crimes and violated international humanitarian principles during its last year’s war on the Gaza Strip.
