Iranian Media Laud Foreign Minister’s New York Visit


Iranian news outlets have been actively praising the recent visit of Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian to the United Nations headquarters in New York as a successful diplomatic effort.

The semi-official ISNA news agency detailed his engagements at the United Nations, highlighting his anti-Israel stances, interviews with American media, and comments on the recent attack on an airbase in Iran’s Esfahan province.

ISNA reported an expert’s view that “the foreign minister was able to use the opportunity… to explain the reasons for Iran’s response to the Zionist regime, and to some extent dispel the incorrect narratives.”

The report picked up by other news outlets in Tehran, also claimed that during Iran’s April 14 missile and drone attack against Israel, supported by key Security Council members such as the UK, the US, and France, Israel portrayed itself as a “victim” while blocking any condemnation of its earlier attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria.

ISNA also praised the foreign minister’s interview with CNN on Thursday in which Amir-Abdollahian said Iran’s response to Israel “stayed within a minimum of frameworks,” noting that Tehran could have taken harsher measures.

In a discussion with NBC News on Saturday, the Iranian foreign minister addressed a recent unclaimed attack in central Iran, stating that the investigation was ongoing and that no direct links to Israel had been established yet. He described the drones involved in the incident as trivial, likening them to “toys that our children play with.”
