Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said Security Council members ignore numerous terrorist attacks in Syria. Assad gets blamed for doing his job. Leaders of all countries would act the same way. They're obligated to protect their people.
Anti-Iranian hostility is the other side of America's regional agenda. Tensions build for conflict. On October 5, Press TV headlined "West playing deaf to Iran nuclear stance: Iran MP," saying:
Parliamentary Presiding Board spokesman Abdolreza Mesri said:
"The Islamic Republic has repeatedly, clearly and openly announced its stances on the nuclear issue but (Washington and its allies) are playing deaf."
They wrongly accuse Tehran of having nuclear weapons ambitions. As a result, lawless sanctions were opposed. Saber rattling continues, and other belligerent threats are made. Iran's always been open to dialogue but gets spurned.
On October 4, The New York Times headlined "Iran Offers Plan, Dismissed by US, on Nuclear Crisis," saying:
A "nine-step plan" was proposed. Cooperation cuts two ways. Significant concessions are essential on both sides. Justifiably, Iran wants sanctions ended. Interfering with its oil sales must stop.
US officials dismissed Tehran's proposal. They called it unworkable. It came during the General Assembly's meeting last month. It replicates what Iran offered European officials in July.
