United Nations, October 2 (RHC)-- Iran's deputy ambassador to the United Nations condemned anti-Iranian remarks made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the UN General Assembly as "inflammatory," and accused him of "saber-rattling."
Khodadad Seifi said to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday minutes after Netanyahu ended his speech: "We just heard an inflammatory statement," adding that the Israeli prime minister "abused the General Assembly."
The Iranian diplomat also warned against any miscalculation by planning to attack Iran in response to Netanyahu's threat of acting alone to stop Iran nuclear program. Seifi said: "The Israeli prime minister had better not even think about attacking Iran, let alone planning for an attack."
Seifi said that Netanyahu's salvo of threats and accusations against Iran comes as Tehran has categorically rejected allegations leveled by the United States, Israel and some of their allies against its nuclear energy program, arguing that its nuclear energy program is only for peaceful purposes.
Israel is widely believed to be the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, with estimated 200-400 nuclear warheads. The Israeli regime rejects all regulatory international nuclear agreements, particularly the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and refuses to allow its nuclear facilities to come under international regulatory inspections.
