What will sleepy Joe do now?
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian delivered a stern message to the United States and President Biden during his address at the United Nations.
He expressed deep concerns about what he characterized as the “genocide in Palestine” and emphasized that Iran does not welcome an escalation of conflict in the region. Amir-Abdollahian cautioned that if the violence in Gaza persists, the United States will not be exempt from the consequences, stating firmly that West Asia is Iran’s home and region.
In transcript provided by Fox, Amir-Abdollahian sternly stated, “Today in New York and the United Nations, I say frankly to the American statemen who are now managing the genocide in Palestine that we do not welcome the expansion of the war in the region. But I warn, if the genocide in Gaza continues, they will not be spared from this fire.”
He continued by underscoring Iran’s unwavering commitment to its security, asserting that the country does not compromise with any party or side. Amir-Abdollahian directed his remarks to President Biden, highlighting that Palestinian fighters are willing to release civilian prisoners. Furthermore, he appealed to the international community, urging support for the release of the approximately 6,000 Palestinians currently held as prisoners in Israeli custody.
The foreign minister criticized the United States for its involvement in actions against Palestinians and questioned its credibility in calling for self-restraint. He argued that the U.S. cannot advocate for peace while providing substantial support to the Tel Aviv regime, which, he asserted, has exacerbated the severity of attacks on Palestinian civilians in Gaza and the West Bank. Amir-Abdollahian’s speech underscored the urgency and complexity of the situation in the region and called for a reevaluation of international policies and actions.
