TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iran criticized the US push to adopt a human rights resolution against Iran.

Iranian ambassador to Geneva, Mohammad Reza Sajjadi referred to American pressure for the resolution and said, "the issue of human rights in the UN is stained with politicization and the organization's credit is harmed."

"We face destructive efforts by few countries and the issue ultimately creates a wave of confrontation and politicization in the UN Human Rights Council," he said at the meeting of ambassadors of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) in the UN headquarters in Geneva.

"The resolution seeks to claim that Iran is not cooperating with some special processes of the UN Human Rights Council and determination of a special reporter in Iran."

"These movements turn routine function of the UN bodies into political struggles which do not gives the least help to advance ideals of human rights."
