Tehran (IP) - The Spokesman of Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes that deterrent confrontation with lawlessness and riot is an axiomatic responsibility of governments to maintain security for their people.

Iran Press/Iran news: Nasser Kanani said on Friday that the enforcement of law and the maintenance of general security is a task of the governments in the world's countries and the Islamic Republic of Iran's government is no exception.

Kanani said pointed out that those countries that suppressed the civil protests of their people had not the prerogative to talk about the enforcement of laws and issuing verdicts to punish the rioters who killed people and disturbed the country's security.  

He considered it regrettable that the meddlesome countries provoked some excited individuals to wage violence against the country's national security and sovereignty and when it turns to try them in the courts to face the music, the interventionist countries appear to be worried about their civil rights.

Kanani recalled that many of the European states followed the US in imposing sanctions on Iran and violated the Iranian nation's rights either directly or indirectly, causing many of the Iranian citizens to die through drug sanctions.    The Iranian general public would never forget the actions of some European regimes in violating their basic rights and hold them responsible in this regard.

The unrest that broke out in Iran recently, under the pretext of a 22-year-old girl Mahas Amini, caused the enemies of the Islamic Republic to use the opportunity to interfere with the domestic affairs of Iran and fuel the recent riots.

From the beginning of the unrest in Iran, the US, along with its Western allies, put support for the rioters on agenda and intensified its anti-Iranian actions under the pretext of human rights violations in Iran.

Those who led the unrest brought the riots to the extent that encouraged the rioters to kill people and then attributed it to the security forces who were standing against them to save the country. 

During the recent unrest, the rioters destroyed public property, even ambulances, and set fire to houses and mosques and people in the streets. They carried out armed attacks in some cities, including Isfahan, killing a number of people and security forces.

The US' former National Security Advisor John Bolton confessed, in an interview with BBC, that weapons from Iraq's Kurdistan have been sent to the rebels in Iran.

Germany is worrying that the rioters are punished in the Islamic Republic. The European country provided the Ba'athist regime of Saddam with chemical weapons against the Iranian nation during the 8-year-imposed war on Iran.
