In an address to the UN Security Council on Monday, Iran’s UN Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo condemned states that are promoting Iranophobia to be able to sell more arms in the region.
“Iran-phobic statements we hear these days  are being actively perpetuated by those who are in need of creating a hypothetical  enemy to sell arms and unleash an arms race in the region. This has nothing to do with peace and security in the Middle East,” he said, Mehr News Agency reported.
Experience in the past decade in the Middle East and North Africa shows that the era of regional and global hegemony has long passed, and any effort by any power to this end is an exercise in futility, he said.
“Instead of succumbing to foreign domination or trying to dominate others, countries in our region should try to create a stronger, more prosperous and more stable region.”
