Iran Condemns UN Resolution on Human Rights Violations

Iran has condemned a recent resolution by the UN General Assembly on the country’s human rights records.

“Unfortunately and in line with a trend established over the past few years, a number of Western countries led by Canada and the United States have passed a resolution against Iran with political objectives and under the delusional pretext of human rights violations in the Islamic Republic,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Friday.

Mehmanparast added that Iran has always been committed to “supporting and promoting respect for its citizens.”

The UN General Assembly on Thursday by a vote of 86-32, with 65 abstentions, passed a resolution against human rights violations in Iran.

And to top it off,they also rob the country blind and expect us to be in debt to them as well.
