Raisi: Iran is ready to participate in expanding peace, security in world
Raisi made the remarks in a meeting with Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres on the sidelines of the 78th Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 78).
President Raisi expressed appreciation for the efforts made by the Secretary-General and the United Nations Secretariat, emphasizing the importance of justice, the eradication of discrimination and poverty, and sustainable security as key missions of the United Nations.
He criticized the war-mongering nature of major powers and hegemony, stressing the need for UN intervention to prevent actions that could disrupt global peace and stability.
He also highlighted concerns about the political and social future of Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, and Africa due to excessive demands and power-seeking behavior.
President Raisi affirmed Iran’s readiness to participate in initiatives promoting peace and security worldwide, stating that cooperation with the United Nations is a fundamental aspect of the Islamic Republic’s policy.
He urged the UN to obtain accurate news about Iran, as media affiliated with dominant states often misrepresent the Islamic Republic, saying that the Iranian society enjoys racial justice and the government attaches great importance to women’s rights.
He also commended Iran for its constructive role in Yemen’s developments and supported Iran’s initiatives to end the Yemen crisis.
