Tehran (IP) - Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman condemned the illegal action of some western governments in trying to expel Iran from the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women as political pressure against Tehran.

Iran PressIran news: Regarding the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, I must explain that Iran, as a member of the U.N., became a member of the commission in a transparent and legal election with the highest number of votes from ECOSOC countries, Naser Kanaani said on Monday's weekly press conference.

Iran's foreign ministry spokesman noted, "The United States and some European countries are trying to block Iran's membership in the commission in an entirely politically motivated and illegal action by putting pressure on Islamic countries.

The move is against the vote of countries in international organizations. In other words, it is a way of questioning the independent countries in the U.N."

"The member countries have freely voted for the membership of the Islamic Republic. Suppose the Westerners succeed in expelling Iran from the commission by applying pressure and using political tools. In that case, they will practically be the founders of this heresy," an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman added.

Kanaani said that countries are members of the Security Council and the United Nations Human Rights Council, which committed countless crimes against governments and nations throughout history and are now using human rights tactics against independent countries.

"If the United States and some European countries succeed in expelling Iran from the Commission on the Status of Women, it will harm the efficiency of an international mechanism, and Iran will use its capacities to counter this illegal approach," Nasser Kanaani highlighted.

Nations of the region believe ties with Israel a treason

Iran says the stance of the regional nations, including Bahrain, on normalizing relations with the Israeli regime is clear; it is treason.

The people of Bahrain staged a protest coinciding with the visit of the President of the Zionist regime to Manama to react against the Al-Khalifa regime's treachery.

In his weekly press conference on Monday, Nasser Kanani told reporters that the normalization process is taking place in the region under the pressure of the U.S. 

Kanaani said that compromise with a regime that is the bane of the region does not help the realization of the Palestinian nation's rights, such that they believe that some countries' normalization of relations with Israel is considered a betrayal of Palestine. 

He pointed to the Bahraini people's stance on the issue: "The people of Bahrain have also expressed their views that they are against the normalization of relations during the visit of the President of the Zionist regime's officials to Bahrain."

Kanani then referred to the confession of the regime's authorities about their presence in the Qatar World Cup and said they had acknowledged the event was the scene of the world and the regional nations' opposition to the Israeli regime. 

"It proves that the normalization of relations between of some governments in the region does not acceptance mean the nations agree with it, and there has been no change in the extent of hatred towards the regime, but it has even increased," he noted.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani doubles down on Iran's position toward the JCPOA revival talks, saying Tehran will not negotiate under "pressure and threats."

"Iran has been committed to the JCPOA and fulfilled its obligations but the U.S. has violated the deal. E3 also failed to comply with their commitments and did not compensate for Washington's unilateral and illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA," In the press briefing, the spox said.

Iraq decided to deploy forces in the Kurdistan region

Following the recent unrest in Iran, the separatist terrorist groups in the Kurdistan region got emboldened and increased their mischief against Iran; Subsequently, Iran's hit their stronghold in the northern part of the region with missiles. 

Kanaani said: "Fortunately, we heard good news these days that the Iraqi government is determined to deploy central government forces on the joint borders of the two countries, especially along the borders with the Kurdistan region of Iraq."
