TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman rejected the recent anti-Iran reports published by the Guardian newspaper, saying it is quite clear why such custom-tailored reports try to blackwash the situation of human rights in the country, especially at this juncture.
In a statement on Wednesday, Saeed Khatibzadeh said Iran believes the politically-motivated behavior and selective moves of the US and certain European governments have always dealt the heaviest blow to the principle of human rights.
He also described the approach, remarks, and moves of certain European countries as an instance of interference in Iran’s internal affairs, and said authorities at the relevant level have taken and will continue to take the necessary measures in reaction to the moves.
“It is quite surprising and unbelievable to us that these countries have not only refused to show any reaction to the blatant violation of the Iranian nation’s rights caused by the US’ inhumane policy of maximum pressure and its cruel and anti-human sanctions, but are also fanning its flames and practically joining it through their inaction,” he added.
