Iran Seeks Urgent UN Meeting Over Israeli Strike on Its Consulate in Syria

Iran's Deputy UN Envoy, Zahra Ershadi, has requested an urgent United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting to strongly condemn the Israeli airstrike on Iran's consulate in Damascus, Syria.

Iran (IMNA) - In a letter to the UNSC, Ershadi highlights the attack as a clear violation of international laws and principles, threatening regional peace and security.

The letter states that on April 1st, 2024, the Israeli regime targeted the Iranian consulate in Damascus using missile airstrikes, resulting in the tragic loss of at least five Iranian personnel and the complete destruction of the diplomatic premises. This action, according to Ershadi, is a blatant violation of the United Nations Charter, international law, and conventions on diplomatic and consular relations.

Ershadi emphasizes the need for the Security Council to condemn this unjustified act and take necessary measures to prevent future aggression against diplomatic missions. Iran also reserves its right to respond decisively to such reprehensible acts under international law and the UN Charter. The letter will be circulated as a document of the Security Council for consideration.
