Envoy Criticizes Illegal Use of Sanctions

Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo criticized the illegal use of sanctions by certain states, underlining that even the UN Security Council’s sanctions resolutions should be adopted in full compliance with the UN Charter.
Addressing a UN Security Council meeting, the envoy said Tehran believes that “any Security Council-imposed sanctions should fall within the confines of the UN Charter at all times”, Fars News Agency reported on Friday.
Khoshroo stressed that “sanctions should not be imposed unless there exists genuine threat, not perceived or fabricated, to international peace and security or in case of an act of aggression,” reminding that sanctions are not meant to punish the general population or aimed at achieving political objectives. “Sanctions should be considered as the last, and not first, resort and imposed only after all means of peaceful settlement of disputes under Chapter VI of the charter have been exhausted,” he said.
“Imposition of sanctions should be decided only after a thorough consideration of the short- and long-term effects on the rights recognized under international law.”
