TEHRAN, Nov. 15 (Press Shia) – Foreign Ministry spokesman says the anti-Iran resolution of UNGA over the situation of human rights lacks credits because of the criminal background of the supportive countries.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran denounces the adoption of the resolution on the human rights situation in Iran at the 72nd session of UNGA with the proposition of Canada and some western countries as an anathematized measure,” said Bahram Ghasemi on Wednesday.
The spokesperson of Iranian ministry of foreign affairs made the remarks after a Canada-drafted human rights resolution was adopted on Tuesday against Iran by the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly with 83 votes in favor, 30 against and 68 abstentions.
“Instrumental, politically-motivated, and double-standard use of human rights issue against independent countries of the world by some western countries is a condemned approach and improper act which will result in nothing but undermining the grand status of human rights,” reiterated Mr. Ghasemi.
“The support pledged to this resolution by some biggest and most blatant violators of human rights, aggressors and war criminals, and the main supporters of terrorism, extremism, and violence is one of the reasons of being politically motivated and lacking credit of this resolution,” asserted Mr. Ghasemi.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is an establishment based on religious democracy and is always and continuously serious in strengthening and enhancing human rights in Iran with full abidance by its international commitments,” he added.
The diplomat voiced the readiness of the Islamic Republic of Iran to have dialogue with the world with respect to its ‘transcendental principles’ to enhance the status of human rights in the world and to cooperate constructively based on mutual respect, equality, justice, and fairness without political motives, with all countries of the world which are ‘genuinely’ concerned about strengthening and supporting human rights.
