UN (IP) - The head of the High Council of Human Rights said that despite the fact that the policy of 'maximum pressure' against Iran was failed, the international legal mechanisms also could not fulfill the minimal rights of the Iranian nation.

Iran Press/Iran News: At the 46th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Ali Baqeri Kani said that the human society was ashamed of the crimes being committed against the Yemeni and Palestinian people and noted that as long as the human rights bodies depended on the will of the US and Israeli regime or the affiliate groups, the rights of the world's nations were not fulfilled. 

Baqeri Kani highlighted the costs the Iranian nation so far suffered as victims of the terrorism, including the assassination of 17,000 people by US-Europe-backed MKO group, and pointed to the US and Israeli regimes assassination of Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani and Dr.Mohsen Fakhrizadeh as only a part of the costs the Iranian nations paid in fighting against terrorism.

He referred to the outbreak of the coronavirus. He noted: "Today, the perpetrators and supporters of illegal and criminal sanctions against the Iranian people, who have blocked access to medical equipment even amid the coronavirus outbreak, pretend that they are concern about the human rights situation."

Emphasizing Iran's will to play an effective role in human rights mechanisms, called on the UN to facilitate practicing justice, investigating crimes, and fighting against criminals' impunity away from any political bias.
