Barack Obama Washington, Apr. 15 (ANI): Iranian ambassador to the United Nations Muhammad Hazai has filed a complaint in the Security Council, claiming that Israel plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. Hazai wrote a letter to Council’s President Claude Heller, insisting that Israel was threatening to attack Iran, and urged the international body to demand Israel’s reply as it was of violating the UN charter. Hazai was responding to recent comments by Israeli officials, including President Shimon Peres and IDF Deputy Chief of General Staff Maj.-Gen. Dan Harel, who implied that the state had the military capability to carry out such an attack if it needed to. “[Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad recruits forces against us, but there are also forces against him,” Kol Hai Radio quoted Peres, as saying. Peres went on to say that he hoped US President Barack Obama’s call for dialogue with Ahmadinejad would be heeded, but warned that if such talks don’t soften the Iranian president’s approach “we’ll strike him.” (ANI)
