Iran rejects ‘baseless’ Israeli allegations over violating Chemical Weapons Convention

Iran has categorically rejected allegations by the Israeli regime regarding the violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention by Tehran, saying that playing blame game does not help the regime cover up its “brutal crimes” against Palestinians over the past seven decades.

The comment was made by Iran’s Representative Reza Najafi at the 28th Session of the Conference of the States Parties that oversees the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention. The conference, held on Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in the Hague, is composed of representatives of all Member States of the OPCW (The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons).

Addressing the session on Thursday, Najafi called allegations leveled by the Israeli representative baseless, saying that Iran is one of the main victims of chemical weapons.

The Iranian envoy also said that the “child-killing Israeli regime, which has not declared its stockpiles of chemical weapons, has no position to make comments about a member state that is a victim of such lethal weapons.”

Playing the blame game and leveling accusations against member states will not help the Israeli regime, which is the main cause of instability in West Asia, he added.
