Iran writes to UN: U.S. claim a threat to world peace
Source: Mehr News Agency
The Iranian mission to the United Nations, in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, has once again rejected the U.S. allegation that Iran had plotted to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to Washington, saying U.S. claim is a threat to world peace.
The letter, which was released on Saturday, said that the U.S. claim of the Iranian government's involvement in the alleged assassination plot has no basis in fact.
There is no solid evidence linking people affiliated with Iran's state organizations including the members of the Qods Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps to the plot, the letter said.
Making allegations against the Islamic Republic based on several suspicious telephone conversations is "ridiculous" and proves that the U.S. claim is totally unfounded, the letter read.
The letter also said the fact that the U.S. had hastily leveled accusations against Iran before the individual charged with the involvement in the plot stood trial reveals the U.S. government's hostile policy on Iran.
In addition, it says that the U.S. move was an attempt to pressure the Islamic Republic and promote Iranophobia.
In conclusion, the Iranian mission called on the international community to be vigilant about the U.S. propaganda campaign and warned about the repercussions of making groundless claims, which are based on fabricated and false information, against other countries, emphasizing that the Islamic Republic regards U.S. actions as a threat to peace and security in the world.
