Tehran (IP)- The interior minister called the Western countries' views on children and adolescents 'deceptive', which could be a major scandal for them.

Iran PressIran News: "The children of Afghanistan, Syria, and Yemen are being oppressed, but the Western governments are not protesting, and no voice is being heard from them.," said Ahmad Vahidi, speaking at the first National Conference for the Protection of Injured Children and Adolescents at Risk.

This is while backed by the United States, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and several other countries invaded Yemen in March 2015.

The Iranian Interior Minister also said that the United States' criminal act in Afghanistan increased the homelessness and displacement of children there.

Vahidi added: "The mentality of Western countries in the field of children are shaped in the form of the International Convention on the Child, which does not pay so much attention to the moral issues and spiritual development of children."

The Interior Minister pointed out that Iran is trying to educate immigrant children, and this is because of humanitarian aid.
