According to News i Agency’s Foreign Policy Group, “Ismail Baghaei Hamaneh”, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the UN Human Rights Council, warned of the continuing abuse of the Human Rights Council by a few countries that have no restrictions or framework in the use of tools They do not have human rights, he said: the claim of the founders of the resolution in compassion for the human rights of the Iranian people has no credibility, because their actions are in clear contradiction with their words.

The resolution proposed by Britain and several other European countries to extend the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran was adopted at the 46th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva with the political vote of less than half of the member states.

Of the Council’s 47 member states, 26 voted against or abstained, with only 21 predominantly European and a few minority countries including Fiji, the Bahamas, the Marshall Islands and Bahrain voting in favor.

In recent years, this resolution has been proposed and approved by European countries with the aim of extending the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran.

Baqaei Hamaneh, referring to the history of gross human rights violations by the main founders of the resolution and their hostile actions against the Iranian people, including the United States and Britain, the recent remarks of the British Foreign Secretary that the country’s commercial interests take precedence over human rights are a sign of hypocrisy. And described the hypocrisy of the British government in the discussion of human rights.

* Annul the decision imposed on the Human Rights Council to appoint a Special Rapporteur on human rights against Iran

The Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Geneva noted: “It is with this businesslike and selective mentality that Britain, the United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, Austria, France, Belgium and some other countries can easily gain financial and commercial benefits.” They sell destructive weapons to the aggressors and child killers in the region, killing and destroying Yemen.

“Take a look at the list of founders and supporters of this resolution,” said Hamaye Baqaei. Which of these countries is really concerned about the human rights of the Iranian people ?! The United States, which has a long history of organized crime around the world and its hostility to the Iranian nation dates back to the 1953 coup and then complicity in Saddam Hussein’s crimes against Iran? A country that in recent years has imposed the most inhumane sanctions against the Iranian people and at the same time assassinated the most honorable heroes of Iran ?! Another name on the list of founders is that, as the only military apartheid system on the planet, its radiant human rights record has led to the complete occupation of another nation’s land and its displacement and genocide.

Calling the decision imposed on the Human Rights Council to appoint a Special Rapporteur on human rights against Iran invalid, the Iranian Permanent Representative stated: “This action has merely created a kind of vicious circle, because logically the founders of the resolution are nothing but negative weaves and black reporting.” The reporter does not expect, and the reporter, in order to extend his mission, inevitably holds himself accountable only to the founders. The result is that the more negativity he weaves, the more he is encouraged by the founders.

In the end, Baqaei Hamaneh emphasized the determination of the Islamic Republic of Iran to strive for the protection of human rights, stating: persecution movements and selective confrontations will not disrupt the continuous efforts of the Islamic Republic of Iran in this direction This field will continue.

According to News i, Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh also reacted to the resolution today (Wednesday). A spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs rejected the draft resolution on the human rights situation at the 40th session of the Human Rights Council, saying that countries that themselves violate the rights of other nations cannot sit as plaintiffs or judges of the human rights situation in one country.

Representatives of China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela and Pakistan criticized the use of the Human Rights Council as a tool and called the appointment of a special rapporteur on human rights in Iran redundant, unconstructive and useless.

The resolution extending the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran has been presented by Sweden on behalf of a number of European countries, including the United Kingdom, for the past 10 years, but this year Iceland changed the division of labor between European countries. Javid Rahman, a British citizen living in the country, has been Iran’s Special Rapporteur on human rights for the past three years.

Argentina, Austria, the Bahamas, Bahrain, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Eritrea, Fiji, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malawi, the Marshall Islands, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, South Korea, Ukraine and the United Kingdom voted in favor of the resolution. Armenia, Bangladesh, Bolivia, China, Cuba, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Uzbekistan and Venezuela voted against the resolution, and Brazil, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Libya, Mauritania, Namibia, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan, Togo and Uruguay abstained.
