Iran calls on UN to condemn assassination of IRGC member

Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations has urged the UN in a letter to condemn the assassination of an IRGC member as part of “its responsibilities to genuinely fight terrorism and in a non-discriminatory manner”.

Majid Takht Ravanchi said in his letter that Martyr Sayyad Khodaei who was “cowardly” assassinated on Sunday was a member of the Iranian Armed Forces who played a significant role in the fight against terrorism and Daesh in the region.

Ravanchi noted that preliminary assessments suggested that the terrorist act was “committed in continuation of systematic assassinations of innocent Iranian citizens and scientists by certain regimes to advance their illegitimate foreign policy goals in the region.”

“Such criminal acts constitute a blatant violation of the UN Charter, international law principles, and fundamental human rights, posing an undeniable threat to regional and international peace and stability,” the Iranian diplomat added in his letter.

He called on the international community and the US to strongly condemn such brutal assassinations targeting innocent citizens of other countries by well-known state terrorism of certain regimes.

Condemning the assassination is in line with the UN responsibilities to genuinely fight terrorism and in a non-discriminatory manner, he noted.

Ravanchi also emphasized that Iran will take all necessary measures to protect its people and interests, and will use all available mechanisms to hold the perpetrators of this terrorist crime and their supporters accountable.
