Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya has called the UN Security Council's emergency meeting on Iran's retaliatory strike against Israel a parade of hypocrisy and double standards.

Iran PressAmerica: "You know very well that an attack on a diplomatic mission is a casus belli under international law. And if Western missions were attacked, you would not hesitate to retaliate and prove your case in this room. Because for you, everything that concerns Western missions and Western citizens is sacred and must be protected," he said at a UN Security Council meeting convened in the wake of the Iranian attack on Israeli military installations.

"Today, the Security Council is witnessing such a parade of Western hypocrisy and double standards that it is even somewhat uncomfortable to watch," the diplomat said.
