  •  Iran: Israeli PM abused UN General Assembly to threaten Iranians

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned Israeli prime minister Yair Lapid’s rhetoric against the Islamic Republic at the 77th UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, stating that he abused the prestigious international event in order to promote anti-Iran hate-mongering and utter threats against Iranians.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kan’ani wrote in a post published on his Twitter page that the head of the terrorist Tel Aviv regime exploited the UNGA podium just like his failed predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu to spread hatred and threaten the Iranian nation.

“It is their modus operandi to blackmail the world,” Kan’ani stated.

“Iran's proven that it won't hesitate to give a dreadful response to any aggression,” the senior Iranian diplomat pointed out.

‘With its shameful record, US not qualified to talk about human rights’

Kan’ani also roundly dismissed US Sectary of State Antony Blinken’s latest remarks about the human rights condition in the Islamic Republic, stressing that Washington, with its dark and shameful record, has no qualification to make a comment about the issue.

“With a despicable human rights record both at home & abroad, how does the US have the audacity to give itself higher moral ground to lecture the world?” the top Iranian official tweeted.

He added that Blinken should bear in mind that he is the top diplomat of country, whose police forces have shot and killed 730 people, many of whom were black people, over a span of just 9 months.
