UN’s Eliasson Discusses Regional Crisis in Tehran

There is no justification for the United Nations indifference toward the military invasion of Yemen and reducing that country's infrastructure to ruins, a top security official said Tuesday.   
Head of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani made the criticism of the world body in a meeting with the UN deputy secretary general, Jan Eliasson in Tehran, IRNA reported.
Pointing to the escalating violence in the region and the brutal massacre of innocent civilians, Shamkhani said, "The UN's reluctance and aversion to take effective measure to end illegitimate measures, including military strikes, supporting terrorists as well as suppressing Muslims in occupied Palestine have created serious questions among governments regarding the role, viability and performance of the world body."
"Iran has drawn on all its potential to implement a ceasefire between armed groups and the Syrian government to stop the genocide and provide civilians with humanitarian aid," Shamkhani said, asserting that Iran is willing to share its experience with the UN in this regard. The Syrian conflict could have been nipped in the bud "through comprehensive and unconditional talks…However, foreign intervention made the situation worse," he complained.
Referring to Iran's successful nuclear negotiations with the six world powers as a case in point, he said, "In spite of the propaganda campaign against Iran's nuclear program, it has been proved that we were never after developing atomic weapons and all those claims to the contrary turned out to be barefaced lies."
"Threatening Iran with military action is a flagrant violation of the UN Charter," the SNSC chief noted, expressing the hope that UN officials would meet their political commitment and not let ochlocracy replace democracy. In talks with the Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, Eliasson described Iran’s Parliament approval of July 14 nuclear accord between Iran and the world major powers as a positive step towards its proper and immediate implementation.
Highlighting Iran's key role in fighting extremism in the region, Eliasson called for Iran's  bigger role in defusing regional tensions, reiterating that terrorism has become a major catastrophe in the crisis-torn Middle East, especially in Iraq and Syria. The senior UN official also called on the chairman of the Expediency Council, Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.
Stressing the need for a comprehensive plan of action to help restore peace to the region, Eliasson said, "Iraq's disintegration would be a political mistake and will not solve any problem.
