NEW YORK, April 21 (KUNA) -- The US emphasized late Thursday the need for the UN Security Council to focus on Iran and Hezbollah as major destabilizing threats to peace and security in the Middle East.
The US Ambassador Nikki Haley chaired the UN Security Council's quarterly open debate on the situation in the Middle East, stressing that Iran and Hezbollah conspire together to destabilize the region, and their actions are expanding.
"For decades, they have committed terrorist acts across the region. Today, they prop up Bashar Al-Assad's brutality, fighting alongside his forces, adding to the killing of thousands of civilians and the misery of millions of refugees.
They train deadly militias in Iraq and arm Houthi militants in Yemen," she added.
The US Ambassador of Trump's administration said if the Council need's to speak honestly about conflict in the Middle East, then they need to start with the "chief culprit" Iran and its partner militia, Hezbollah.
She noted that the Council pay "too little" attention to this growing menace, confirming that her country will not. "We are going to speak up about Iran and Hezbollah, and we are going to act against their lawlessness ... The incredibly destructive nature of Iranian and Hezbollah activities throughout the Middle East demands much more of our attention. It should become this Council's priority in the region," she added. (end) mao.gta
