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.

Statement by H.E Gh. Khoshroo Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Islamic Republic of Iran to the UN In “the High-Level Conference of the Heads of Agencies combating Terrorism” Second Panel: Combatting the evolving threat from Foreign Terrorist Fighters (New York, 28-29 June 2018)
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.
