Iranian Response Compounds Tense Mideast Situation: UN

14.04.2024 04:27

'Vicious cycle of attack and counter attack will lead to nowhere, but inevitably, to more death, suffering and misery,' says General Assembly president.

UN General Assembly President Dennis Francis voiced concern Saturday about Iran's airborne attack against Israel.

"I am deeply concerned about the unfolding situation in the Middle East, involving the launch by Iran of drones and missiles against Israel," Francis said in a statement.

Tehran explained its action in the context of Article 51 of the UN Charter, following the recent Israeli attack on the Iranian Embassy in Syria, he said.

"The Iranian response compounds the already tense and delicate peace and security situation in the Middle East," he said, as he urged all parties to exercise the "utmost restraint" to avoid further escalation of tensions.

"This is a moment that calls for wise and prudent judgement, in which the risks and extended risks are very carefully considered. I expect that the Iranian authorities will honour their word that by their action today, the matter can be deemed concluded.

"A vicious cycle of attack and counter-attack will lead to nowhere, but inevitably, to more death, suffering and misery," he said.

Dialogue and diplomacy are the only way to resolve differences through peaceful means, Francis added. -
