Tehran(IP): The spokesperson of Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the US is the main culprit which violates all kinds of human rights and humanitarian laws.

Iran Press/Iran News: Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan'ani made the statement in a post on his X social media account on Friday following a recent US-instructed report by the United Nations that accused the Islamic Republic of committing what it claimed to be “crimes against humanity” during foreign-backed riots in Iran in 2022.

“By preemptively activating their propaganda machine concerning human rights in Iran, American authorities will not be able to expunge the stain of oppression and the US complicity in the genocide and mass murders inflicted upon the oppressed Palestinian population in Gaza and the West Bank,” Kan'ani said.

Nasser Kanaani further warned: "In the eyes of the conscience of humanity and the public opinion of the world, the US is the main suspect in the violation of all kinds of human rights and humanitarian laws due to its participation in equipping and arming the Zionist regime."

He added: “The ostentatious and hypocritical display by the United States regarding its endeavors to supply and deliver food to the Palestinians fails to mitigate the undeniable reality of its unwavering support for the war crimes committed by the Zionist regime."

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman noted: “The politicization and instrumentalization of human rights and international human rights mechanisms constitute an inherent aspect of American foreign policy reality."

Earlier, the spokesman had decried the Zionist regime’s dark record of the massacre of Palestinians and the international agencies’ employees, saying Israel is not qualified to be a member of any human rights organization or international mechanisms.

At least 31,341 Palestinians have been killed and 73,134 injured in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7.
