Iran has formally complained to the United Nations over comments by US President Barack Obama which Tehran considers to be “nuclear blackmail,” the official IRNA news agency reported Wednesday.
In a letter submitted to the world’s top diplomatic body on Tuesday, Tehran questions the “intent” of Washington’s new nuclear policy and says it contains threats of nuclear attack against Iran, IRNA said.
“UN members should not tolerate or ignore such nuclear blackmail in the 21st century,” says the letter, delivered by Iran’s envoy to the UN Mohammad Khazai.
“The United States, in an illegitimate manner, has identified a non-nuclear country as a target of its atomic weapons and is drawing its military plans on this basis,” the letter says, according to IRNA.
