    Iran envoy: Swedish resolution, political motivation

The Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Iran to the United Nations Office at Geneva said Swedish draft resolution against Iran in the Human Rights Council, was non-constructive and politically motivated.

Iran Press/Iran newsEsmaeil Baghaei Hamaneh, in his speech to the Human Rights Council, advised the Swedish government to put an end to this harmful and counter-productive against the Iranian nation, Iran Press reported.
