Iran rejects ‘baseless’ Israeli claims, urges UNHRC to avoid politicization

Press TV – March 13, 2021

Iran’s permanent ambassador to the UN office in Geneva has dismissed “baseless” accusations leveled by Israel against the Islamic Republic at the United Nations Human rights Council (UNHRC), urging the body to avoid politicization.

Addressing the 46th regular session of the Human Rights Council on Friday, Esmaeil Baghaei Hamaneh said the regime occupying Jerusalem al-Quds has no right to comment on the noble issue of human rights in Iran.

The remarks came after the Israeli mission in Geneva tweeted, “Today, during the Item 4 General Debate, where HRC46 discusses situations which require its attention, we repeated our call for @UN_HRC to focus on Iran.”

Baghaei Hamaneh said the Israeli regime is best described under the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975. In the Resolution 3379, Israel was declared a racist regime.

He said the rule of law makes up the basis for promoting human rights and protecting the foundations of freedom.

The Iranian envoy also expressed regret that some governments focus on weakening the rule of law in developing countries by targeting their judicial systems under the pretext of defending human rights.

No country or group of states should consider that they have the right to dictate their priorities and ideals to others, the Iranian envoy said, stressing that the world’s countries can freely choose their governments as well as judicial, legal and economic systems according to the principle of independent action.

He further called on the UN Human Rights Council to distance itself from politicization, double standards and stereotypes.

Baghaei Hamaneh also criticized Canada, Australia, Britain, Denmark, the US, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Sweden for accusing others of rights violations while pretending as if no one was aware of their own contradictory performance both inside and outside their countries.

These states, he added, are accused of widespread human rights violations across the world through exporting weapons to aggressor countries and adopting unilateral policies towards developing countries.

  2. Any accusations made by Israel against Iran can safely be dismissed as pure PROPAGANDA. Israel not only makes all sorts of claims about Iran, but also Goads the USA into menacing Iran, usually based on a complete pack of lies(compiled by Israel/CIA)
    If the USA had a REAL President, he would tell Israel to mind its own business, but it hasn’t, and it won’t……
