TEHRAN – The human rights and citizenship faction of Iran’s Parliament has strongly condemned the political resolution of three European states against Iran, saying the West is politically abusing the UN Human Rights Council.
“The great nation of the Islamic Iran has no doubts about the political abuse of the UN Human Rights Council by the Western governments, because despite the explicit disagreement of 64 countries and abstention vote of 32 countries as member states of the UN Human Rights Council, it was approved by the political decision of the Western governments,” the faction said in a statement on Saturday, according to Mehr.
Among the countries which voted in favor of the resolution against Iran were Saudi Arabia, the UEA, Bahrain, and Israel which have a dark record in violating the basic principles of human rights.
The following is the full text of the statement:
Once again, the enmity and hostility of some Western governments towards the Iranian nation was revealed and the Iranian nation was punished by issuing a political resolution due to its practical commitments to fulfill its rights, protecting human dignity and defending rights of independent nations.
This time, the UN Human Rights Council, which is a body established for the promotion of human rights and protection of rights of nations against the tyranny and oppression of arrogant human rights violators, became a tool of political abuse of these countries.
The great nation of the Islamic Iran has no doubts about the political abuse of the UN Human Rights Council by the Western governments because despite the explicit disagreement of 64 countries and abstention vote of 32 countries as member states of the UN Human Rights Council, it was approved by the political decision of the Western governments.
The question of freedom-seeking people of the world, especially the noble nation of the Islamic Iran from the Western governments as claimant of human rights, is that the occupying Zionist regime and invading Saudi regime should kill how many more Palestinian and Yemeni children in order to deserve a serious response from international human rights monitoring mechanisms? A country that has allowed sale of weapons in its own country for economic gain in order to have the highest number of murders with firearms. How long should black Americans be oppressed by the racist regime in the United States? To what extent should the Iranian people lose lives of their beloved ones due to the criminal U.S. drug sanctions? The answer is very clear.
For this purpose, the Iranian Parliament’s human rights and citizenship faction calls on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Human Rights Headquarters of the Islamic Republic of Iran to use all diplomatic capacities to take measures to prevent hostile actions by Western governments in the field of human rights and activate the legal and political capacities of independent countries to save human rights from the political domination of Western governments in international bodies.
