Iranian authorities in a letter to the Secretary-General and the UN Security Council regarding the situation surrounding the killing in Iraq of General Qassem Soleimani, said they could exercise their right to self-defense.

“Iran, in accordance with international law, reserves all rights to take the necessary measures, in particular, to exercise its right to self-defense,” said the letter of the Permanent Representative of Iran to the UN, Majid Taht-Ravanchi.

 In the document, the diplomat also said that instead of the stated goal of the fight against terrorism, “the United States itself is fighting against those who fight terrorism. Such behavior seriously undermines regional and global efforts to combat international terrorism,” the document says.

“These actions are aimed at escalating tensions in the already troubled region. The United States will be fully responsible for the consequences of its actions,” Takht-Ravanchi warned.  He also called on the UN Security Council to condemn Washington’s actions.

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, in a telephone conversation with UN Secretary-General Anthony Guterres, called the attack on the United States in Baghdad, which killed the general.
