AP  |  United Nations 

Nikki Haley is accusing and its ally Hezbollah of conspiring to destabilize the Middle East a charge "categorically" rejected by Iran's UN envoy as propaganda perpetrated by and others in the region.

Haley is the current Security Council president and she asked members for this month's meeting on "The situation in the Middle East including the Palestinian Question" to focus on factors causing conflicts across the region instead of engaging in what she called routine "bashing."

Her targets at yesterday's meeting, where over 50 countries spoke, were and Hezbollah, which she also accused of committing "terrorist attacks across the region" for decades.

But only one of the 14 other council members mentioned while they all talked about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Syria.
