Iran asks for the nullification of the veto

The aide to the permanent representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations asked that the veto power of the five permanent members of the Security Council be nullified.

Ishaq Ale Habib, the aide to the permanent representative of Iran in the United Nations, in a general assembly, stating that this merit (veto) divided countries into those who have it and those who don’t, added: “This merit is unjust and has caused those countries who have the power of the veto to force the Security Council to make decisions in their own benefit.”

The subject of the general assembly was improvement of the Security Council. This subject started one month ago and the issue of the power of veto has been discussed by representatives of numerous countries.

Habib said: “60 years has passed since this issue (the power of veto being given to certain countries after the Second World War) and fundamental changes have been made in the international community. The continuance of this merit is unjust and cannot be borne. Therefore, the biggest improvement should be the complete nullification of the veto.”
