« Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi addressed the United Nations General Assembly, held in New York, on Tuesday. During his speech, Raisi denounced attacks on Islam and the traditional family and called for ‘understanding’ to bring ‘unity’.
« Concurrently with the war on Islam, we are also seeing the war against the framework of the family. The family is the most fundamental column that has supported human development, which is now under attack. Today crimes against humanity are not just an occupation of lands and oppression against people and mass killing, but it is also a concerted attack on the family itself that is also a crime against humanity, the protection of the nucleus of the family, made up of the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, is an inherent truth », said Raisi, who held a Quran in his hand.
During Raisi’s intervention, a group of protesters gathered in front of the United Nations headquarters to oppose the Iranian leaders’ message and to demand his removal.
The General Debate at the 78th session will hear from around 140 world leaders on a range of global and regional issues, including war in Ukraine, climate change, political upheaval in West Africa, economic instability, and a number of recent natural disasters. »
