Iran's MFA spokesman:
Countries violating nations' rights cannot claim human rights: Iran's MFA spokesman

Tehran (IP) - Spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in response to the UN Human Rights Council's anti-Iran resolution, stressed that countries that violate the rights of nations could not claim the status of human rights.

Iran PressIran news: Saeed Khatibzadeh, the spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Wednesday in response to the resolution of a group of countries against the Islamic Republic of Iran at the 46th session of the UN Human Rights Council: "This resolution is the result of disparate, weak votes and lacks international consensus and acceptance."

According to Khatibzadeh, in this resolution, the agenda of the Special Rapporteur has been extended, which does not mention the deaths of dozens of innocent children and hundreds of innocent patients due to the difficulty of accessing medicine and medical equipment, and he does not care about the definitive violation of the 'right to life' and the 'right to access treatment' of thousands of Iranian citizens.

Khatibzadeh added: "Supporters of this resolution should, first of all, condemn the actions of the US government due to economic terrorism and the intensification of unilateral and oppressive sanctions, and condemn their destructive effects on Iranians to access to necessities such as medical equipment in facing coronavirus."

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman also said that despite the oppressive pressures caused by US economic terrorism, Iran has always adhered to its obligations to its citizens and the international community.

Khatibzadeh emphasized: "Iran has taken steps to develop and promote human rights at the national, regional, and international levels, and in practice, it is committed to complying with it."
