Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the U.S. and Britain of committing acts of 'aggression, occupation and violation of international law.' ..."The abuse of the Security Council, as an instrument of threat and coercion, is indeed a source of grave concern," said Ahmadinejad. ..."It must be acknowledged that as long as the council's unable to act on behalf of the entire international community in a transparent, just and democratic manner, it will neither be legitimate or effective," ...
...Iran's president lashed out at the UN for inaction and delay when the Israeli military abducted Palestinian government officials and launched air strikes that ended up killing Lebanese civilians and UN observers. ..."When the power behind the atrocities is itself a permanent member of the Security Council, how then can the council fulfill its responsibilities?" he said.
On the subject of Iran's nuclear activities, Ahmadinejad said they were "transparent, peaceful and under the watchful eye" of United Nations inspectors. He questioned why his country was being denied its own nuclear program when others have not.
