65 years ago today, the US overthrew the popularly elected democratic government of Dr. Mossadegh, restoring the dictatorship & subjugating Iranians for the next 25 years. Now an “Action Group” dreams of doing the same through pressure, misinformation & demagoguery. Never again.
Extremely saddened by passing of Kofi Annan, a toweing global leader and an unwavering champion for peace, justice and rule of law. Rest in peace my dear old friend.

Gholamali Khoshroo argues in Guardian that by imposing sanctions the Trump administration is reneging on UNSC resolution 2231
Mr. President, I thank you for convening this open debate and also align myself with the NAM statement to be delivered by Venezuela. The occupation of Palestine has been the main root cause of the conflicts in the Middle East. With that in mind, Israel must be compelled to end the occupation; to stop its expansionist strategies; and to put an end to all its aggressive policies and criminal practices.
H.E Syed Ali Mohammad Mosavi, Director General of international affairs of Sustainable Development, Ministary Of Foreign Affairs, ➢ It is an honor and privilege for me to participate in this high-level dialogue on combating dust and sand storms. I urge everyone in this session to take a moment and imagine their own beloved hometowns covered in sand and dust. Environmentalconditions for the Iranian people in terms of clean air have deteriorated to dangerous measures because of negative effects of SDS.
Statement by H.E. Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations On children and armed conflict: protecting children today prevents conflicts tomorrow Before the United Nations Security Council New York, 9 July 2018 In the Name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful Mr. President, I would like to begin by thanking the Council President, Swedish Prime Minister, for organizing this open debate. I also thank the Secretary-General for his report, and appreciate the valuable inputs from the briefers. A large increase in violations against children in 2017, as reported by the UNSG, is alarming. This underlines the necessity of redoubling our efforts to prevent the emergence of new conflicts. It indeed is the most effective way to protect children from the scourge of armed conflicts.
During her trip to India, US Ambassador Nikki Haleys claim that Iran has, like North Korea, "dedicated their effort towards building nuclear forces". This claim is categorically absurd and yet another chapter in the gaffe-prone history of the fact-challenged Trump Administrations reckless behavior on the international stage. It is the most recent in a long line of clear examples that demonstrate to the world that the American governments belligerence towards Iran and its violating of its international obligations are born from ideological and obsessive anti-Iran zealotry, not security or international concerns.
Statement by His. Excellency Gh.Khoshroo Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations Before the General Assembly Agenda Item 132: Responsibility to Protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity New York, 2 July 2018
Mr. President, The Islamic Republic of Iran fully shares the sentiment that the international community must be vigilant not to let the horrors of mass killings and genocide of the past be repeated in the future. No one forgets how the inaction on the part of the United Nations in the face of tragic cases of genocide and crimes against humanity as well as outrageous acts of aggression in the last two decades led to the death, injury and displacement of millions of innocent people. This was more, however, due to the failure of the Security Council to act when action was needed, rather than the result of an absence of normative framework or lack of implementation of the R2P. Thus, it was the inaction of the Security Council due to the lack of political will of its some Permanent Members that brought about the horrible genocide in Rwanda and other similar catastrophes.‌ The controversies around the R2P are not rooted in the noble notion of prevention of atrocity crimes, but rather in its implementation and scope of application. Examining this concept in practical terms may put it in better perspective and help to make this abstract concept more concrete. Moreover, discussions on R2P could not be divorced from its political and legal implications. Looking forward should not relieve us from looking back and reminding ourselves of lessons of history. It has been witnessed that, in practice, the R2P is guided by the politicized interests of certain States rather than human dignity and human rights and therefore has been taken far from its alleged objectives and purposes. This, in its turn, has put into question its legitimacy and applicability as a political tool alleged to be used in times of distress. As a result, the R2P is gradually being developed and seen as a political tool to pave the way for interventionist polices, whenever needed, in a selective manner. This is exactly where the R2P concept faces a real challenge.
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, Relevant UN reports indicate that over 25000 Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTFs) had gone to Syria from over 100 Member States. This figure demonstrates that the threats related to the FTFs is complicated and multi-faceted and needs urgent attention of the international community. As our world increasingly recognizes no borders, all parts of the world are
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, Relevant UN reports indicate that over 25000 Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTFs) had gone to Syria from over 100 Member States. This figure demonstrates that the threats related to the FTFs is complicated and multi-faceted and needs urgent attention of the international community. As our world increasingly recognizes no borders, all parts of the world are being more or less threatened by this spreading scourge. In analyzing the root causes of joining of individuals to FTFs, while we agree that such factors as dictatorship, poverty, corruption and discrimination could serve as contributing factors under certain circumstances; abundant experience and facts clearly show that only a destructive ideology could turn an otherwise peaceful human into a destructive being. This dark extremist Ideology is commonly used to legitimize acts of violence and cannot be eliminated only through military, political, or economic means. Any effective strategy against FTFs must entail in the first place a major cultural and ideological component.
