In reaction to cancelation of Iran-Canada match:
Ali Bahadori-Jahromi

Tehran (IP) - Criticizing the unilateral cancellation of Iran's football match with Canada, the spokesman for the Iranian Administration has stated that Westerners prioritize politics over sports and human rights.

Iran Press/Iran news: The Football Association of Canada, which had previously announced in a bilateral agreement with the Football Federation of Iran that the two teams would contest on June 5 in Vancouver, canceled the match unilaterally.

The spokesman for Iran's Administration, Ali Bahadori-Jahromi, wrote in a note that the match between the Iranian national football team and Canada was canceled, and the Russian athletes were banned from various sports, which are examples of the influence of politics on the sport while claiming freedom and denying politics in sport.

Bahadori-Jahromi stated that these actions are being taken while similar actions are not being taken against other countries that started the war or even countries accused of genocide and other terrorist acts.

He added that Western human rights are not based on sound anthropological and epistemological foundations, adding that human rights have been politicized rather than empowered.

Western countries, which are among the biggest human rights violators in the world, have double standards on human rights.

In order to escape the response of the people of their country and the public opinion of the world, they always question the human rights situation in the countries that oppose Western domination.
