US denies Iran’s FM Zarif visa to address Security Council in violation of UN treaty – reports

RT | January 7, 2020

Washington has reportedly refused to issue a visa to Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, even though, as the host of the United Nations headquarters, the US is obliged to allow foreign officials into the country.

According to multiple diplomatic sources, the visa request was filed several weeks ago, before the latest escalation, and would give the top Iranian diplomat a stage to speak out following last Thursday’s drone strike assassination of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander Qassem Soleimani, along with senior Iraqi militia leaders.

The murder of Soleimani, who played a key role in the fight against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists in Syria and Iraq, has drawn outrage across Iran and Iraq, with Tehran vowing to avenge the assassination, which it called “an act of international terrorism.” Washington, meanwhile, insists that Soleimani was the mastermind behind a spate of attacks on American personnel, including at the US Embassy, and says he was plotting new assaults.

This wouldn’t be the first time Washington abused its status as the host of the UN headquarters, refusing to issue visas for nearly a dozen members of the Russian delegation to a summit in New York last year.

  1. “This wouldn’t be the first time Washington abused its status as the host of the UN headquarters”,

    The USA, really, is losing the respect of the rest of the World. withdrawing from the JPCOA, killing foreign generals using the unprovable excuses, staying in Iraq 17 years after attacking it under completely fake justification. Staying in Syria when the Prime Minister has told them to GET OUT, not holding the Israeli’s to account for killing and wounding Palestinian civilians…….
    Everything about the USA today goes against their “so called” “Freedom and Democracy”(which was cancelled after the False Flag of “9’11″……)

    • We’re a national, constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. But, we do have minor elections where the popular vote wins.

      The satanic Jewish Jesuit monks and Israelis and US death cult Zionistas want the world to blame Americans for their crusades. They want Americans to take the blame, wear their shame, pay the bill. But the true facts are; America voted consistently against war.

      Brian, they suckered you into hating Americans. It’s what they’ve done throughout history and they’ve been kicked out of 109 nations thus far for the same reasons. It’s called…the Hegelian dialectic, the protocols of zion, …”the great work”, aka…the great deception, those who say they are Jews but are not, the synagogue of satan, and there’s five satans, not one. Gadre’el is the satan of the Jew, aka., “G_d”.

      What Trump’s doing, that’s not what we voted for. We voted to bring our troops home, we voted to drain the swamp, we voted to build a wall, deport illegals, make America great again, the country everybody wanted and will want to come to when Iran hands Zionists their arses. Iran stated clearly their beef is not with Americans, Iran’s beef is with the Zionists.

      America hasn’t had a legitimate president since JFK’s assassination done by the Jewish Jesuits, Israelis, London bankers, and US Zionists. JFK wanted to end the fed, bring our troops home, drain the swamp.

  2. Outrageous. But that is the operative word as regards this Zionist-orchestrated cast of morons, extremist religio-zealots, and criminals.
