Islamabad(IP)— Reza Amiri Moghadam, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Pakistan, has strongly condemned the U.S. Congress Resolution on the 2024 Pakistan Elections, calling it a blatant interference in the domestic affairs of an independent nation.

Iran PressAsia:  In a statement, the ambassador expressed his bewilderment at the U.S. Congress' actions, stating, "Among the wonders of modern ignorance is that a country prevents cease-fire resolution by veto and supports the genocide of the people of Gaza by providing all kinds of lethal weapons to the Zionist regime, but the Congress of which passes a resolution questioning the nationwide election in an independent member of the United Nations."

Ambassador Moghadam emphasized that the resolution, aside from being an interference in the domestic affairs of an independent U.N. member state, is a form of extortion under the guise of supporting democracy.

The ambassador's condemnation comes in response to Resolution 901, adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives, which questioned the legitimacy of Pakistan's electoral process.

Pakistan has firmly rejected the resolution, with Foreign Office Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch stating that it stems from an inadequate and erroneous understanding of Pakistan's political and electoral system.

Ambassador Moghadam's statement underscores Iran's support for Pakistan's sovereignty and its right to conduct its internal affairs without external interference. The Iranian envoy's remarks also highlight the growing tensions between Iran and the United States, particularly over issues related to the Middle East and the support for the Palestinian cause.
