` Human Rights Council Resolution is ` Illegitimate ' and `Islamic Republic of Iran ' Considers the Approach Non-Constructive '

#AceWorldNews – TEHRAN – March 31 – Expressing regret over issuing a resolution against Iran at the UN Human Rights Council, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman said approval of the resolution on Iran is based on dual standards and has political aims.

Marziyeh Afkham said that the move aims to create dispute between countries, impose special standards on others, and disrupt international human rights mechanism.

She stressed that Islamic Republic of Iran considers this approach non-constructive.

Afkham added that issuing such resolutions is ignoring Iranˈs positive steps in fulfilling its obligations and its constructive cooperation with international bodies and the improving trend of human rights in Iran.

Afkham continued that the resolution is following political interests and lacks legitimacy, adding that it is regretful that sponsors of the resolution are silent and indifferent about violation of human-rights of Palestinian people, and fate of innocent people, who are being taken hostage by terrorist groups and citizens who lose their lives on pretext of fight against terrorism.

The spokeswoman stressed that promotion of human rights is a global concern and no country is superior to others in such an important human responsibility and Iran has positive interaction with related international bodies and intends to make a dialogue and cooperate in a realistic way.
