  • Iran’s foreign minister, UN chief discuss US illegal measures

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres talked about the US government’s illegal moves against Iran at a meeting in New York.

According to Tasnim news agency, speaking to reporters after the Wednesday meeting with Guterres, Zarif said their talks revolved around bilateral issues, the US’ unlawful actions regarding the situation in Palestine and its recognition of the Golan Heights and al-Quds as parts of Israel, and its illegal policies on Syria, Libya, North Africa and Yemen.

Asked why the meeting took longer than usual, Zarif said they have also discussed Washington’s illegal measures against Iran and reviewed all the issues the UN is currently trying to address.

Zarif has traveled to New York to participate a High-Level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate and promote the International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace. The meeting was held on Wednesday at the UN General Assembly.

The top Iranian diplomat has also delivered a speech to the UN General Assembly on the threat of US unilateralism in the world.
