Tehran (IP) - The Iranian foreign minister has said that Tehran expected the United Nations Security Council to condemn the Israeli regime's aggression on the Iranian consulate in Iran.

Iran PressIran news: Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a phone call with the Slovenian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Tanja Fajon on Monday.

In the telephone conversation, the Iranian foreign minister once again strongly condemned the Israeli regime's action in violating the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran by attacking the Iranian diplomatic facility in Damascus and said: "We expected the UN Security Council to condemn this act of aggression, but the United States and the two European countries prevented the passing of a resolution as the minimum thing in condemnation of that blatant aggression. Therefore, a calculated operation was carried out by our country within the framework of the legitimate right to self-defense in response to this aggression."

Slovenia's foreign minister also emphasized the importance of the regional role played by the Islamic Republic of Iran in preventing the escalation of tensions in the region, adding that, "Slovenia's efforts to establish lasting peace in Gaza and sending humanitarian aid will continue. Slovenia believes that a ceasefire in Gaza is the only right way to reduce tensions in the region."

In the end, the two sides emphasized the necessity of maintaining and strengthening peace and stability in the region.
