Tehran (IP) - Secretary of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights slammed Europe for its fabricated human rights standards.

Iran PressIran news: Media sources report about the 2,000 African migrants who were trying to enter Spain's Melilla but were beaten by the security forces such that about 20 of them were killed and a number of others were wounded. 

Kazem Gharibabadi wrote in a tweet on Wednesday: "The EU’s fabricated human rights standards will never lead to real promotion & protection of the rights of people. What is it, the Masque of the Red Death?"

"African migrants seeking a better life end up dead at the Spain-Morocco border," Gharibabadi said.

In April also more than 90 irregular migrants were reported to have died in another tragedy in the Mediterranean.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi in a tweet then alluded to the double standards adopted by European countries on the refugee issue.

He added: "Europe has proven its ability to host 4 million refugees from Ukraine generously and effectively. It must now urgently consider how to apply this to the refugees and other migrants knocking on its doors."
