Danny Danon urges UN to penalize Iran for missile tests

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon calls on the Security Council to punish Iran for its latest ballistic missile tests.

“Ignoring Iran’s violations will be a green light for continuing nuclear missile tests,” Danon says before an emergency session of the Security Council. “History has taught us that we cannot bury our heads in the sand, action must be taken against Iran,” he adds.

Referring to the threat to wipe Israel off the face of the earth which was written on one of the missiles, Danon asks member nations, “if on it was written that England, France, Japan, or any other country, must be removed from the earth, would the Security Council sit silently?”

According to Danon, “punitive measures against Iran” are the only way to ensure Iran does not continue to test more missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
