Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on the UN Security Council to step in and investigate the recent unrest gripping Britain.
The Mehr news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as having told reporters after a cabinet meeting, I advise the British statesmen to be aware that the era of colonialism has come to an end. And they should listen to the voice of their people.
The President of the Islamic Republic added, The people protesting the wrong policies (of the government) are being beaten on the streets of London, and the question is how come this country (Britain) which claims to be a model for human rights has been attacking its people this way.
He also said that Such brutal actions are in no way acceptable, and the officials of the country should listen to the voice of their people and allow them to participate in the major affairs of the country.
Never one to avoid criticism, Ahmadinejad said it would be better if British officials cared about their people rather than intervening in countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya.
I am concerned about (a possible) social explosion in the West, an explosion which no one would be able to control, Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. The European people have gone through many difficulties and no longer want to incur losses that officials have been inflicting on them.
Ahmadinejad did not stop there and also criticized the UN Security Council for remaining silent about the developments in Britain.
Today the UN must show whether or not it can play a role in the management of the worlds affairs, he said. The UN Security Council must intervene and show if it is able to condemn a permanent member for its polices brutal crackdown on protesters.
