Iran Urges International Community to Demand U.S. Stop Its ‘Destabilizing’ Activity

UNITED NATIONS, June 20 (Reuters) Iran‘s ambassador to the United Nations called on Thursday for the international community to demand the United States end its “unlawful and destabilizing measures” in the Persian Gulf, saying Tehran did not seek war but would act to secure its territory.

Ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi, in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said Iranian forces targeted an unmanned U.S. aircraft on Thursday when “despite repeated radio warnings, it entered into the Iranian airspace.”
