Iran Blames U.S. for Israeli Atrocities in Gaza, Lambasts Veto on UN Ceasefire Resolution

Iran's permanent ambassador to the United Nations, Amir Saied Iravani, accused the United States of bearing responsibility for the crimes committed by the Israeli regime against Palestinians in Gaza. Speaking at a UN Security Council session, Iravani criticized the U.S. for its unwavering support for Israel's genocidal actions in Gaza, stating that such crimes would not be possible without the U.S.'s consent, orders, and comprehensive political, financial, and military backing.

The Iranian diplomat also condemned the United States for obstructing UN Security Council measures aimed at achieving a ceasefire in Gaza by consistently vetoing related resolutions. Iravani asserted that the U.S. had impeded the Security Council's commitment to fulfilling its UN Charter obligations, preventing a ceasefire despite global appeals.

In a related development, Iran labeled the U.S. veto of a UN resolution on Gaza ceasefire as an endorsement of Israel's ongoing brutality against the Palestinian people. The Israeli military aggression, initiated on October 7, has resulted in the deaths of nearly 19,500 people, with the majority being women and children, and over 51,000 individuals wounded.

Additionally, Iravani held the U.S. and European parties to the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) responsible for the current state of the nuclear deal. He asserted that the U.S. and the E3/EU (France, Germany, and the United Kingdom) were accountable for the JCPOA's situation due to their significant non-performance of obligations under the agreement and continuous material breaches of their legal commitments under resolution 2231.

Talks to revive the JCPOA have remained paused since August, with Iran attributing the stagnation to a lack of political will from the Biden administration. Iravani pointed out that the responsibility for the JCPOA's current situation lies squarely with the United States and the E3/EU, citing multiple instances of non-performance and systematic breaches. Iran contends that the Biden administration has yet to demonstrate the necessary commitment to rectify the damage caused by the previous administration's withdrawal from the nuclear deal.
