Iran’s UN envoy wrote to the Security Council criticising Israel over what he called “yet another explicit threat… against the Islamic Republic of Iran and its peaceful nuclear program”, adding that “the number and intensity of such provocative and adventuristic threats have consistently grown and reached an alarming level”. Contending that Israel had attacked Iran’s nuclear sites “beyond any doubt”, the ambassador “warn[ed] against any miscalculation and possible military adventurism and called on the council to “hold that regime fully accountable for the consequences of its unlawful measures”, while maintaining that “Iran reserves its inherent right to self-defence to decisively respond to any threat or wrongful act perpetrated by the Israeli regime”.
