Iran’s UN Envoy Urges Human Rights Council to Stop Political Attitude

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Permanent Ambassador to the UN Offices in Geneva Ali Bahraini slammed the Human Rights Council for its political approach towards rights issues, and said that the so-called advocates of Iranian people’s human rights have repeatedly deprived Iranians of their basic rights through their sanctions policy.

Bahraini made the remark on Monday while addressing a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council.

He said the conduct of those who deprive the Iranian nation of their basic rights while alleging to be advocating their human rights is nothing but “sheer hypocrisy”.

“It is a sheer hypocrisy that the perpetrators of crimes against Iranian people advocate for the human rights of Iranians and table draft resolutions against Iran while depriving the same people of their basic rights to health, to education, and to life,” Iran’s ambassador added.

Bahraini also slammed false reports prepared on the human rights situation in Iran, including by UN Special Rapporteur Javaid Rehman, who also addressed the Monday session of the council before the Iranian envoy’s speech.

Iran’s ambassador stated such biased reports ignored the realities on the ground in Iran, adding that Rehman refrained from mentioning the foreign-backed terrorist attacks in the country, which led to the deaths of dozens of security forces and innocent people.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Bahraini touched on the role of the foreign-backed media in inciting terrorism in the country.

Iran’s ambassador said hundreds of foreign-based TV and radio channels as well as social networks encourage violence in Iran by providing tutorials on how to make weapons and engage in armed conflict.

Bahraini’s remarks came after Rehman presented his report to the council, claiming that Iran’s authorities have committed violations in recent months that may amount to crimes against humanity, including by cracking down on foreign-backed violent riots that swept the country for three months.

The Iranian envoy stated that Rehman’s allegations were imaginary and Iran was being singled out and targeted in the council.

“They try to portray their imaginations as the reality of the situation in Iran,” he added.

Protests erupted in several cities across Iran over the death of Mahsa Amini who fainted at a police station in mid-September and days later was pronounced dead at a hospital. The demonstrations soon turned violent.

An official report by Iran’s Legal Medicine Organization announced that Amini’s controversial death was caused by an illness rather than alleged blows to the head or other vital body organs.

Iranian officials blame Western countries for orchestrating the riots to destabilize the country.

The unrest has claimed the lives of dozens of people and security forces, while also allowing acts of terror and sabotage across the country. Iran’s Interior Ministry has confirmed the enemy waged a hybrid war against the country to weaken national solidarity and hinder the country’s progress, stressing that some 200 people lost their lives in the riots sparked by separatist and terrorist groups.

The US, the UK and the European Union (EU) have imposed a slew of sanctions against Iranian individuals and legal entities since the September death in police custody of an Iranian woman. Iran has returned the adversarial measures and meddlesome statements with sanctions against European, American and British officials and institutions.
