Explanation of Position

By the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations

Before the United Nations General Assembly

On “Culture of peace – Item 16: draft resolution (A/76/L.30)”

New York, 20 January 2022


Mr. President,

I am taking the floor to explain my delegation’s position regarding document L.30. We strongly reject the deceitful attempt by the Israeli regime, the main sponsor of draft resolution L.30, to misuse the concepts affiliated to agenda item 16, entitled the “Culture of Peace”.

The fires of the Second World War, which brought untold sorrow to humankind, were spread on two main drivers: “racism” and “expansionism”. These sinister intentions have still continued in felon minds. Most notably, the Israeli regime is the symbol of both of those dreadful motives and has applied them in its policies and practices in well over seven decades and continues to do so now. 

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 34/103 adopted 14 December 1979, “resolutely condemns imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, apartheid, racism including Zionism “. Also, in its resolution 3151 (XXVIII) of 14 December 1973, the Assembly condemned, inter alia, the unholy alliance between the [former] South African racism and Zionism. Furthermore, the Political Declaration and Strategy to Strengthen International Peace and Security and to Intensify Solidarity and Mutual Assistance among Non-Aligned Countries adopted on 30 August 1975, has severely condemned Zionism as a threat to world peace and security and called upon all countries to oppose this racist and imperialist ideology. Declaration of on the Equality of endorsed by the World Conference of the International Women’s Year, in 1975, has also called for “the elimination of colonialism and neo-colonialism, foreign , Zionism, apartheid and racial discrimination in all its forms”.

Despite these outstanding calls by the international community, the Israeli regime has remained as the only apartheid regime in the world, with racist and expansionist ideology, policies, and practices.

This draft does nothing to promote the culture of peace. Indeed, the main driver of the Israeli regime in presenting this draft resolution is the same racist beliefs as well as its mischievous intentions to pursue its expansionist interests through all means.

That regime has routinely attempted to exploit the sufferings of the Jewish people in the past as a cover for the crimes it has perpetrated over the past seven decades against the regional countries, including all its neighbors without exception. So far, it has committed all four core international crimes, and on certain occasions, it has committed them simultaneously. Its brutal crimes against the , include massacre, assassination, ethnic cleansing, collective punishment, inhumane blockade, demolition of houses, and forced eviction.

During World War II, my country hosted many from certain . My government has continuously condemned genocide including on racial, ethnic, or religious grounds, as a crime against humanity. In our view, there is no justification for the genocide of any kind and under any circumstances. Nor can be any justification for any policy or practice, like those undertaken by the Israeli regime, to exploit past crimes as a pretext to commit or justify new genocides or crimes. The occupation of Palestine and parts of Syria and as well as the continued gave systematic violation of the human rights of the Palestinians, including their inherent right to self-determination and to establish their independent State with Al-Quds Al-Sharif as its capital constitute a crime against humanity and cannot be justified whatsoever. Rather, such crimes entail the international responsibility of the Israeli regime, and all its officials and the perpetrators of such crimes must be held accountable and brought to justice.

The international community should take strong action against the atrocious crimes of that regime and not allow this opportunistic regime to pursue its illegitimate goals through manipulating humanitarian sentiments.

Moreover, this text exerts an awkward approach towards historical studies. Many heinous cases of genocide that have occurred throughout , including those perpetrated during the Second World War, necessitate a thorough and comprehensive consideration in order to eliminate any possibility of future repetition. Imposing an obstructive approach on such an examination will certainly not serve this purpose. Undoubtedly, addressing such historical events requires a proportionate degree of research, scrutiny, and rigor. The seriousness and sincerity of that endeavor will indeed be undermined by rendering political judgments on such events and interdicting any inquiry on their characteristics, scope, and extent.

For the reasons elaborated above, my delegation fully dissociates itself from the draft resolution L.30 in its entirety including definitions therein; and would like to remind you that this text shall not be considered or quoted as a consensus-based text in the future.

I thank you, Mr. President.
