Iran's permanent ambassador to the United Nations Amir Saeid Iravani says the country’s missile and space programmes are fully in compliance with its legitimate rights under international law.
He made the remark in a Monday letter to Secretary General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres and the rotating president of the Security Council.His letter came in response to an earlier letter by the Israeli envoy to the world body, claiming that Iran's launch of the Noor-3 satellite using Qased (Messenger) Space Launch Vehicle (SLV) on September 27, 2023 was in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231, reports Press TV.
“The claim in the letter is completely unfounded as Iran has never taken any activity inconsistent with the Security Council Resolution 2231,” the Iranian ambassador said.
Iravani said, “Iran has made it clear time and again that all activities related to its missile and space programs are fully in compliance with its legitimate rights under international law.”
He also stated that the Israeli regime’s baseless claim is aimed at diverting attention from “heinous crimes committed by this apartheid regime against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.”
