Iran's Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Eshaq Al-e-Habib says the international community is fed up with the Israeli regime's criminality.
Addressing the 193-member UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, Al-e-Habib condemned the comments earlier made during the session by the Israeli envoy to the UN, Ron Prosor.
"The Zionist regime (Israel)'s representative once again stated unfounded and futile allegations against the Islamic Republic of Iran," Al-e-Habib said.
"These allegations are stated while the international community is frustrated at the regime's [activities] due to its inhumane, aggressive, and criminal track record and also its terrorist activities in the region and other parts of the world," he said.
The Iranian official referred to the Israeli regime as "the main reason behind insecurity and instability in the Middle East."
The regime usurps every opportunity to deflect the international community's attention from its own oppressive activities and the comments made by its envoy are meant to serve the same purpose, noted the Iranian official.
Al-e-Habib also said Iran was ready to mediate between the Syrian government and the armed opposition to resolve the crisis in the Arab country and expressed Tehran's support for the UN and Arab League Joint Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are behind the unrest while the opposition accuses the security forces of killing protesters.
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the insurgents are foreign nationals.
