In a letter submitter to the president of the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Majid Takht Ravanchi warned that the frequency and severity of the Zionist regime's provocative and adventurous threats had steadily increased over the past months and reached an alarming level.
Such blatant systematic threats against one of the founding members of the United Nations are a gross violation of international law, in particular Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter, he added.
As a case in point, the diplomat referred to the recent comments by the Israeli military chief, Aviv Kochavi, who said earlier this month that the regime was in constant preparations for an attack on the Iranian nuclear program.
Kochav had said, "The operational plans against Iran's nuclear program will continue to evolve and improve," and that "operations to destroy Iranian capabilities will continue, in any arena and at any time."
The fact that the Tel Aviv regime continues to try to "destroy Iran's capabilities" proves without any doubt that it had been responsible for terrorist attacks against Iran's peaceful nuclear program in the past, Takht Ravanchi said, Press TV reported.
Given the ominous history of the Israeli regime's destabilizing practices in the region and its covert operations against Iran's nuclear program, it is necessary to counter the regime and stop all its threats and disruptive behavior, the top diplomat added.
