TEHRAN, YJC. Iran's Majlis is considering a discussion of the European Parliament's recent resolution against the country.
The National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran's parliament Majlis will be discussing the issue at its first session in the Persian New Year and adopt the required decisions, said committee spokesman on Friday, Press TV reports.
"Since the anti-Iran resolution constitutes blatant interference in the internal affairs and even the most detailed issues of the country, it should be seriously considered by the [country’s] diplomatic apparatus,” Seyyed Hossein Naqavi-Hosseini added.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry must summon the ambassadors of the countries involved in engineering the resolution and seriously remind them of the issue, the lawmaker noted.
On Thursday, the European Parliament passed a resolution on the EU’s strategy toward Iran.
In the motion, the EP expressed concern over the alleged violation of human rights in Iran.
It also claimed that Iran’s presidential election in June 2013, which led to the victory of Hassan Rouhani, was "not held according to the democratic standards valued by the EU.”
Iran has dismissed the resolution as unrealistic and counterproductive at a time when the Islamic Republic and the European Union have taken initial steps to resolve issues germane to mutual relations.
