Iran’s UN rep. warns against secret growth of Israel's nuclear power
Iran's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Mohammad Khazaee said the baseless claims of Israel about the nature of Iran's peaceful nuclear activities is just another attempt by it to deviate the international public opinion from secret expansion of its nuclear arsenal.
In the Wednesday meeting of the United Nations Security Council which focused on ways to fight human trafficking and controlling illegal border exchanges, Khazaee said Israel owns hundreds of nuclear warheads and other kinds of mass killing weapons which are all illegal and threaten the international peace and security.
He referred to labeling Iran with hollow claims as one of the basic characteristics of the war-mongering policies of Israel and said it accuses Iran of arms trafficking while it embarks on many criminal acts like state terrorism an example of which is the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan.
He further outlined Iran's policies on elements which threaten international peace and security including cross border smuggling of drugs, terrorism, human trafficking and illegal arms trade.
He stressed that Iran, due to its geographical position, is situated in a region which suffers from tensions and clashes resulting from illegal trade of fire arms, organized crime, terrorism and drugs trafficking.
The Iranian envoy went on to underline in his remarks that Iran will spare no efforts to challenge and confront such illegal activities.
He reminded that Iran has spent billions of dollars to improve its security systems in border areas and lost over four thousands of its border and security guards in battles against criminals.
