Concerns Over UNSC InterferenceConcerns Over UNSC Interference

A senior Iranian envoy has called on the UN Security Council to avoid interfering in the affairs and duties related to the world body’s General Assembly.

Gholamhossein Dehqani, deputy ambassador to the United Nations, made the statement in an address to a meeting of the UN General Assembly in New York on Thursday, Fars News Agency reported.

Iran is the rotating president of NAM.

“NAM member states on different occasions have voiced their concern over the interference of the UN Security Council in the scope of duties of the UN General Assembly as well as the economic and social councils of the world body because the Security Council deals with issues that do not fall within the scope of its responsibilities and are within the domain of the authority of other UN sections,” he said.
