Iran willing to work with international HR bodies, Larijani
IRAN  - "Iran does not welcome the UN special rapporteur on Iran's Human Rights due to their biased report, supporting those who insult Islamic values and terrorists like MKO," Mohammad Javad Larijani, Head of Iran's High Council for Human Rights said.

In a message delivered to the Briefing session on Human Rights Achievements in the Islamic Republic of Iran, held on Monday morning in the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Larijani expressed Iran's strong commitment to advance Human Rights in the country.

"Islamic Republic is willing to work with international HR bodies, especially Human Rights Council to advance our aim of improving justice globally and maintain peace, security and development by strengthening human rights."

Larijani dismissed UN special rapporteur reports on Iran as "general and baseless claims"; adding that the appointment of special rapporteur has been done on political agenda "which is not acceptable."
Iran's HR chief also noted that "the double standards" are the main obstacle of a productive HR talks; denouncing the use of human rights as a political tool against Islamic Republic.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran's approach towards human rights is a comprehensive one. In addition to the political and civil rights, the social and economic rights have been paid much attention as well and many tangible achievements have been made in this regard. Apart from international interactions, Iran has made continuous efforts in order to ensure and promote human rights domestically."

He also noted some of the systematic measures taken during the past two years are as follows:

. 22 acts, bills and proposals Ratified or considered and discussed in the parliament.
. More than 31 civil rights charters launched by the government.
