Iran and Pakistan call on UNSC to take action against Israel

International National

In a joint statement after Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s three-day visit to Pakistan, the two countries accused Israel of a “major escalation in an already volatile region” after “illegally” targeted neighbouring nations and foreign diplomatic facilities.

“The two sides strongly condemned the attack on the Consular Section of the Iranian Embassy in Damascus, which was an unacceptable violation of the sovereignty of Syria and undermined its stability and security,” the statement, published by Pakistan’s foreign office, read.

It added: “Both sides expressed their strong and unequivocal condemnation of the ongoing Israeli regime’s aggression and atrocities against the Palestinian people, along with the inhumane blockade of Gaza that has resulted in widespread death and destruction as well as displacement of millions of Palestinians.”
