Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian addresses the UN Security Council in New York on Thursday, April 18, 2024.

Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has told the UN Security Council to force Israel to stop any further military action against Iran or face the Islamic Republic’s “decisive” response to any aggression.   

“I emphasize again: Iran’s legitimate defense and countermeasures have been concluded. Therefore, the Israeli regime must be compelled to stop any further military adventurism against our centers, assets and interests,” he told the council Thursday.

“In case of any illegal use of force by the Israeli regime, the Islamic Republic of Iran will not hesitate a bit to assert its inherent right to give a decisive and proper response to it to make the regime regret its actions. This is an unchangeable decision,” he added.

Amir-Abdollahian said the Israeli attack on April 1 on the Iranian diplomatic premises in Damascus showed yet again that the regime does not hesitate to violate the fundamental principle of the immunity of such places and people as well as the Vienna Conventions. 

“As the majority of the members of the Security Council declared at the April 2 meeting here, the attack was a clear violation of the Charter of the United Nations, international law and the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and thus is strongly condemned,” he said. 

Officials have said the “imperative for Iran” to retaliate for the attack on its embassy compound in Damascus might have been avoided had the UN Security Council condemned the strike at its April 2 meeting. 

At the April 2 meeting, the Iranian minister said, the council failed even to issue a mere statement containing a simple condemnation “due to the unfortunate and completely irresponsible behavior of the United States, the UK and France in response to this illegal attack”.
