TEHRAN, Sept. 3 (ICANA) – A senior Iranian lawmaker regards a report released by a UN fact finding committee on Israel's deadly raid on a Gaza-bound relief aid Flotilla last year "a joint report by the US and Zionist regime." He also regretted that the United Nations was still seeking to serve the interests of Tel Aviv and Washington.

UN Report on Flotilla Raid a Joint Work by US, Zionist Regime

Speaking to ICANA on Saturday, Alaedin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission stated that the UN report on the Israeli attack was not neutral.

Recalling that the Zionist regime had been created with the backing of the United Nations from the very beginning, the lawmaker regretted that the international body continued to remain under the influence of the Zionist regime. He said the UN in its report had tried to justify the attack by the Israeli commandos on the Gaza freedom flotilla.

Boroujerdi said publication of such reports by the UN would further undermine the confidence of the world public opinion in the international body. However, the MP said, this will only consolidate the resolve of the regional nations in supporting the Palestinians in their rightful course towards liberation.

The UN report said that Israel had used unreasonable force in its raid on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla in international waters of the Mediterranean Sea in May 2010, during which nine Turkish activities were killed.

The report also described Israel's naval blockade on Gaza, which has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the impoverished territory, as 'legal.'

One day after the UN report was leaked to The New York Times, Ankara suspended all its military ties with Tel Aviv and expelled Israel's envoy from Ankara over the regime's refusal to apologize for the attack on the Gaza-bound flotilla.

Turkey also says it will seek legal action against the Israeli regime for its deadly raid.

Turkey's President Abduallah Gul also said that expulsion of the Israeli envoy is just the first step in many possible measures taken against Israel if it persists in its refusal to apologize.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on Saturday expressed his optimism that the two former allies could mend ties.

"Normal relationship will be very important in addressing all the situations in the Middle East, including the Middle East peace process," he said.

Observers believe Ban's statement and the recent UN report that legitimizes Israel's brutal siege of Gaza and its attack on a relief aid convoy reflect Tel Aviv's undue influence on the world body.
