Hossein Amir-Abdollahian Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran.

On Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian reiterated Iran’s stance on the recent retaliatory missile strikes targeting Israeli military bases, calling them a legitimate act of defense guaranteed by the United Nations Charter.

“Attacking military bases in the Zionist entity is a legitimate defense guaranteed by the United Nations Charter,” the Foreign Minister declared.

He emphasised Iran’s determination to protect the country’s sovereignty, unity, and national interests against any form of aggression. The Minister reaffirmed Iran’s readiness to take further defensive measures as needed to safeguard its interests.

“Our resort to defensive measures in exercising the right to self-defence proves our responsible approach to regional security,” he added.

The statement follows recent retaliatory missile and drone attacks launched by Iran against Israeli targets, which resulted in intercepted projectiles both within and outside Israel’s borders. Global leaders have called for restraint and diplomacy in response to escalating tensions in the region.
