UN human rights resolution politically-motivated: Iran

“The Islamic Republic of Iran condemns such resolutions, which are endorsed against the Islamic Republic of Iran in an unrealistic manner and based on the double standards of Western governments as well as spiteful and political approaches,” Qassemi said on Tuesday.

Iran rejects the instrumental and political use of the issue of human rights by Western countries against independent states in the world, he added.

The Iranian spokesperson emphasized that the Islamic Republic strongly believes that such an approach would have no result other than sacrificing human rights and increasing the world public opinion’s distrust in international human rights mechanisms.

By a vote of 85 to 35 with 63 abstentions, the United Nations General Assembly on Monday approved a resolution criticizing Iran’s human rights record.
