Israel’s envoy to the United Nations, Danny Danon, says Iran “continues to act in defiance of the Security Council.”
Speaking at the entrance to the Security Council at the UN’s New York headquarters, Danon points to Iran’s continued missile tests, including one last week of a “ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead,” Israel’s mission to the UN says in a statement.
“This latest missile test proves that Iran continues to act in defiance of the Security Council. The international community cannot bury its head in the sand and make do with words to combat the Iranian threat,” Danon says.
“Council members must understand that Iran’s actions do not only defy the Security Council, but present a real threat to Israel, the Middle East, and the entire free world,” he adds.
