Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Majid Takht-Ravanchi on Monday, filed two complaints against Israel with the UN Security Council calling on the international community to take a stand against the "Israeli regime" in response to a speech by the Israeli Ambassador.
Israel’s UN Envoy Gilad Erdan detailed in length in a speech last month, the dangers Iran poses to the international community.
Israeli Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi’s spoke against Teheran and the 2015 Nuclear Deal in his address to the Institute for National Security Studies in January.
In response to the complaints against Israel and the calls to take actions against it, Erdan warned the Islamic Republic against any kind of aggression against the Jewish State.
“We will continue to act against the insane ayatollah regime on every front and especially in the UN,” Erdan said. “I suggest Tehran not put us to the test. Iran's intentions to destroy Israel and its actions in the Middle East should should prompt the international community to act as soon as possible and not bury its head in the sand."
“Israel will act in every way possible to prevent the world's most dangerous regime from arming itself with the world's most dangerous weapons,” he added.
"I demand of the Security Council to ignore Iranian lies and deploy the only effective measures to combat the danger posed by the Islamic Republic: crippling sanctions and a significan threat of military action."
In response, Takht-Ravanchi accused Erdan of making “false allegations regarding Iran's nuclear program. "[Erdan] is desperately trying to portray our peaceful nuclear program as a threat," the Iranian ambassador said.
In his speech, Tehran's envoy also referred to the threats against Teheran made by Israel’s Chief of Staff in his speech last month. "Israel was intensifying its provocative rhetoric and its war mongering against Iran, and plans to to carry out its belligerent threats,” he said.
