Iran has condemned the new UN resolution against human rights violations in
Iran, describing it as "a misuse of human rights."
Marzieh Afkham, the spokeswoman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry
IRNA reports that Marzieh Afkham, the spokeswoman for the Iranian Foreign
Ministry, said: "The Islamic Republic condemns such self-serving acts by Western
countries and the misuse of human rights against independent countries, and
regrets that the UN is being used as a tool to satisfy such political games."
On December 18, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution against the
violation of human rights in Iran. Meanwhile, it has welcomed President Hassan
Rohani's promises to improve the state of human rights in the country.
Afkham allowed that the resolution makes "a cursory reference to the 11th
presidential election and the actions of the new government, but the totality of
the resolution is filled with falsehoods that came from Western websites and
media and notorious terrorist groups."
