Iran urges UN to condemn US for interception of civilian aircraft

24

Tehran has asked the UN to condemn the United States for the interception of an Iranian airline passenger liner by two fighters in Syria. This incident took place last month.


The requirements were set out in the text of letters sent by the Iranian Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, to the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, and to the Security Council. This was reported by the Iranian news agency Tasnim.

Tehran protested strongly against the actions of the US military:

Iran expresses its strongest objections to this violation of international law and will seek a solution to this issue through the relevant international bodies.

According to the Iranian side, on July 23, an Airbus A310, owned by Mahan Airlines and flying Tehran-Beirut, was suddenly intercepted by two F-15 fighters of the US Air Force. Takht-Ravanchi emphasizes that at that moment the civilian airliner was in the international corridor of Syrian airspace. Due to the aggressive actions of the Americans, the crew of the Iranian plane had to sharply change the altitude, as a result of which some passengers were injured.

Now the authorities of Iran and Syria are independently investigating the incident.

Takht-Ravanchi said that the UN should condemn this illegal act and bring Washington to justice.

    Iran needs to start intercepting Israeli passenger planes over the Mediterranean by irradiating them with targeted air defense systems.

      It is not difficult to guess that such an event would be the last for its participants.

    Anglo-Saxons, Franks and their vassals will veto in the UN Security Council any decision condemning the United States.

      In general, this UN, it is high time to disperse. A totally incapable organization. A bunch of parasites pretending to be doing something useful. For great money, by the way. In fact, this misunderstanding has long been irrelevant. As an old thing - and not needed, it seems, and it's a pity to throw it away.

      Iran does not want to wipe away silently.
      So doing the right thing.
      Better, of course, to press from all sides, but Iran has little leverage.
      However, the firing of missiles at the US base showed that they think broadly enough. So maybe they are preparing something else.

        When there was this incident, they did not immediately bring it in, they waited - August 5 Pompeo - "Next week, the United States will submit to the UN Security Council a resolution to extend the arms embargo against Iran. The UN Security Council mission is to maintain peace and security, the Security Council will make this mission a real a laughingstock if it allows the first sponsoring state of terrorism to freely buy and sell weapons. " At the same time with the Security Council, there are two US and Iranian resolutions ... Let's see - Russia and China were going to block the extension of the embargo, and as an add. Iranian argument ....

      The requirement is reasonable, because there have been incidents of shootdowns of Iranian (and not only Iranian) aircraft. And there were no punishments for the guilty and no compensation. And this is US terrorism.

        "there were cases"
        There were, when the USSR shot down, and when the Russian Federation shot down ... And when the joint exercises with Ukraine were, as they say, Russia shot down, they piled on Ukraine, although she had nothing to shoot down at such a height.

    Iran urges UN to condemn US for interception of civilian aircraft
    In general, there are no questions to Iran.
    Even more so when you consider that
    Due to the aggressive actions of the Americans, the crew of the Iranian plane had to sharply change the altitude, as a result of which some passengers were injured.
    I once typed that these interceptions will finish badly. Why were American pilots in one place to show off in front of a passenger plane? The pilots must answer. You need to think about the kukunder. Even if the order to check what is flying overboard. Be careful from the back. Without frightening the public, they monitored and knocked over.

    UN is a cardboard organization controlled by the United States. The result is obvious.

    So you can go down to lawlessness. According to Flyradar, there are a lot of sweets flying over Iran. They can plant one of the US officials for inspection. Israel probably does not use air corridors over Iran.

    Iran to intercept Israeli passenger planes at SPM? Is this a fragment from some fantastic story?

      There is no naivety here. They just use the only platform available to them to show who the terrorist is. They don't have many options.

    Just - if they didn't think in St. Petersburg ...

    This was the "correct" interception. Russians don't do that
