In a statement on Thursday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kan’ani said that the Canada-drafted resolution was worthless and unacceptable amid Western countries’ indifference to the Zionist regime’s crimes in Gaza which is “a dishonor for them and shows their open hypocrisy and sheer lies in defense of human rights.”
Kan’ani added, “How can the United States and some Western countries not see the massacre of children and women by the usurping Israeli regime in Gaza and instead issue a resolution against Iran by repeating unfounded accusations based on false information and dishonest generalizations?”
The Iranian spokesperson shed light on efforts by the United States, Canada and some other Western countries in their all-out support for the Zionist regime to commit savage crimes, war crimes and genocide against the innocent and defenseless Palestinian people.
“These countries, that have a long record of organized breaching of human rights and many nations in the world have bitter and painful experiences of their interference and crimes, are not in a position to give human rights recommendations to the Iranian government and people,” he stated.
The spokesperson also censured the provisions of the resolution as “one-sided” and “unrealistic”, saying the move by its initiators was meant to abuse the concepts and high values of human rights in order to push forward their short-sighted political goals. He added the resolution lacks any legitimacy or validity.
Kan’ani elaborated, “The Islamic Republic of Iran is an establishment based on religious democracy and has always been serious about promoting human rights and fulfilling its international commitments.”
He added, “The Islamic Republic, based on it high principles, is ready to engage in constructive dialogues and cooperation with all legitimate international mechanisms and countries interested in bolstering and truly backing human rights within the framework of mutual respect, equality of countries, as well as justice and fairness away from political motives.”
Kan’ani said, Iran seeks to advocate human rights in the real sense of the word and to elevate its position all over the world.
