Offical letter to UN on Disarmament rapporteur

  •   Offical letter to UN on Disarmament rapporteur
    7 October 2013
    I am writing to condemn the selection of the Islamic Republic of Iran as rapporteur of the General Assembly’s Committee on Disarmament and International Security.
    It is inconceivable that a state under Security Council sanctions for suspected WMD proliferation activities would be allowed to hold this position. Permitting Iran to serve on the UN’s leading disarmament committee is like appointing a drug lord CEO of a pharmaceutical company.
    Iran’s appointment erodes the UN’s legitimacy and its ability to promote arms control and disarmament as well as, preserve global peace and security. Rather than provide a global stage for Iran’s defiance and deception, the UN should shine a spotlight on the regime’s ongoing pursuit of nuclear weapons and its support for terrorism across the globe.
    Please accept, Excellency, the assurance of my highest consideration.
    Yours truly
    Ron Prosor
    Permanent Representative
