- The former U.S. attorney general demanded for more efforts to bring down the dialogue of war with Iran.
Attending to the panel "The Right to Benefit from Scientific Achievements" held in the 19th session of UNHRC in Geneva, Ramsey Clark said to Iran High Council for Human Rights web site that everybody should try to stop a new war in middle east, this time some war mongers want to strike Iran by the excuse that it is developing nuclear weapons.
The lecturer of the called panel stated that some in United States of America are beating over war drums and regretfully the media fuel the fire of madness. We all should try to reduce the dialogue of war and prevent it to become the real scene.
Stressing that all countries in the world have the right of enjoying a peaceful life, this famous expert in the field of international law said: when you talk about the war with a nation every day, their fundamental and their basic right to have a peaceful life is being violated and they won't be allowed to have the benefit of the most primitive right to live and to promote.
Answering a question about the assassination of Iranian Scientists, Clark said:
In all international laws, assassination is strongly condemned. Resorting of assassination and killing humans either they are ordinary ones or they are scientists is painful, however murdering Scientists is worse and more unforgivable. No country in the world has right, for the pretext of maintaining its security and preventing its enemies to be developed, comes to assassination or any other kind of inhuman pursuit.
Continuing to condemn the assassination of Iran's nuclear scientists, the high-ranking and international lawyer in response to a question about how specifically international law comes to these assassinations, aid: this is an important question that how international law, encounter with the assassination? In spite of the fact that in all international laws, the assassination is illegal and illegitimate I say there is basically no right to commit a crime and terrorism in all conditions is a crime. But responding of what it should do about I would say all the states are responsible for preventing these crimes and all should help to make the international laws to come more feasible on that.
Highlighting that the scientific progress of Iran is very important, this US veteran anti war activists said: Iran's enhancement is the humankind's progress. But some states don't think so. They consider Iran's progress dangerous and for the same reason set various options to stop Iran which resorting to war is one of them.
Answering to the question of how much the likely hood of war is, Clark said: the prediction that war will occur or not is a difficult task. Now the war clouds loomed but the difference is that the situation of air is predictable, but the climate of war is not. I hope the situation doesn't get worse.
Asked how it is possible to prevent the new war, the former U.S. attorney general answered: All we should try in this way. We should warn the world that war will leave so many loss, damages and undesirable consequences for people. United States let the resources and infrastructures of the two countries destroyed in the last two wars, and now it should not be allowed to have the same thing happened to another country.
Referring to his attendance in the panel in the 19th UNHRC session in Geneva, Clark said: It is what I can do. Wherever I go, I'll warn about war and the violation of human rights.
