The U.S. envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, told the Security Council that "if there is one country that is the source of conflict and instability in the Middle East - one country that merits a quarterly debate in the Security Council - that country is not Israel. It's Iran". Asserting that "it is difficult to name a conflict in the Middle East that does not have Iran's fingerprints on it", Haley went on to add that "Iran has trampled on the sovereignty of its neighbours. In Lebanon. In Syria. In Yemen. And the Iranian regime has shown a total disregard of the sovereignty of... Iraq".
