Tehran (IP)- Since the 1960s, the United States has supported at least eight terrorist groups with a long history of bloodshed in West Asia, Europe, and Latin America, including Washington's full support for the MKO, a notorious terrorist group that has assassinated 17,000 innocent Iranian citizens in the last four decades.

Iran PressIran news: Under the pretext of fighting terrorism, US forces have a military presence in more than 80 countries.

The United States has carried out all its military attacks under the pretext of fighting terrorists; Washington has shown that it does not have a genuine desire, and a serious determination to fight terrorists.

That is why new terror groups, such as al-Qaeda, have sprung up, spurned by Washington's so-called fight against terrorism.

Afghanistan and Iraq, which were supposed to be cleared of terrorists, have become a safe haven for ISIS (also known as Daesh) terrorist group.

During Donald Trump's presidency, Washington's bullying rhetoric, terrorist threats, and racist acts have become more obvious.

The assassination of Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), by order of President Donald Trump, is a clear act of terrorism and a violation of international law.

The terrorist act violated article 2 of the United Nations Charter and is a threat to international peace and security.

In the past month, the horrific racist murder of black American George Floyd by a white police officer, followed by police violence and Donald Trump's threat to unleash the military against the protesters, has brought into question all of Washington's claims about democracy and civil liberties.

Given the criminal actions of the United States, such as sanctions, the seizure of pharmaceutical and healthcare items sent to other countries, the assassination of military commanders and officials by Donald Trump's direct order, these are the issues that the UN Security Council must investigate, to tackle threats to world peace.
