Iran rejects UN report on human rights situation

iranian foreign ministry spokesman ramin mehmanparast

The Iranian government has dismissed the recent report written by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, calling it unsubstantiated, biased, and a repetition of the Western allegations against Tehran.

On Saturday evening, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said that Ahmed Shaheed collates the information he uses to write reports accusing Iran of human rights violations from anti-Iranian media outlets and terrorist groups.

Mehmanparast also expressed regret over the publication of Shaheed's recent report, saying it seriously undermines the UN's system of human rights protection and lacks legal credibility.

He went on to say that the Islamic Republic is eternally committed to respecting human dignity and the basic rights of the people, in line with its Constitution and religious teachings.

He also noted that Tehran will continue to abide by its international obligations, despite all the anti-Iran propaganda and unconstructive reports.
