Iran rapped West rights stance

Iran rapped West rights stance
IRAN  - Iran's representative to UNHRC rapped the stance taken by the West towards human rights issues stressing that the UN Human Rights Council is marred by politicization.

Iran's representative to the UN Human Rights Council has blasted Western states over their approach toward the issue of human rights. Mohammad Javad Larijani said Western states have adopted a biased approach toward human rights, which is based on political and racial issues. He called for efforts to oppose such stance and announced Iran's readiness to cooperate in this regard.

Larijani also blasted the US and European countries for keeping silent on the civilian lives taken by the Saudi war on Yemen.

He said these countries remain silent while they claim to be defenders of human rights. The Iranian representative was speaking at the 37th regular session of the UN human rights council in Geneva.

Iran says it remains committed to engage in constructive and frank cooperation with the UN on human rights but has complained of double standards, politicization and hypocrisy.
