The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, in response to the phone calls of the Foreign Ministers of Germany, England and Australia, who demanded Iran's restraint in response to the Zionist regime's crime in attacking its consulate in Syria, has emphasized: legitimate defense with the aim of punishing the aggressor is a necessity.

Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Tehran: Hossein Amir Abdollahian, publishing some details of these calls, said: In these phone calls, while exchanging views on some bilateral issues, he emphasized that when the Zionist regime violates international law and the Vienna Conventions, the immunity of people and it violates diplomatic places, and the Security Council is unable to issue a statement condemning the terrorist attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus.
He stated that "legitimate defense with the purpose of punishing the violator is a necessity".
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran added: In the following, he emphasized the need for the three mentioned countries to declare a clear position in condemning this terrorist crime of the Israeli regime and clarified that Iran is not seeking to expand the scope of the war, but the return of stable security in the sensitive region of West Asia. Curbing the warlike and unbalanced leaders of the Zionist regime and stopping the war crimes of this regime against Gaza and the West Bank are related.
Meanwhile, Iran's representation in the United Nations has emphasized in a statement about the Zionist regime's encroachment on diplomatic places: if the UN Security Council had condemned the Zionist regime's encroachment on our diplomatic places in Damascus and subsequently prosecuted its perpetrators, perhaps the necessity Iran's punishment for this rebellious regime would be lifted.
The spokesperson of the United Nations has also said in response to the statement of the Iranian delegation in this organization: Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations has emphasized the need to respect diplomatic centers and does not want to witness an escalation of tension in the region. The Secretary General has clearly emphasized the need to respect the Vienna Convention and respect diplomatic centers.
On the other hand, the spokesperson of the White House claimed that Washington does not want to expand the conflict in the region and informed Tehran that it had no role in the attack on the consulate of this country in Damascus.
But Karin Jean-Pierre stated: "The United States will protect Israel's security, especially against these threats from Iran and its proxies, this has not changed."
This is despite the fact that in the last ten days, the Zionist regime has been waiting at the highest level and with great fear for the resounding response of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Damascus crime, and has emphasized that it will respond to it if it is attacked from Iranian soil.

Previously, other senior officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran, especially the leader of the Islamic Revolution and the Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran, have emphasized the decisive response to the crime of the Zionist regime in the attack on the country's consulate.
