TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_ The report of the UN Human Rights Council periodic summit was inspected tonight in Iranian evening news in an exclusive interview with the Secretary of Human Rights of the judiciary municipal Mohammad Javaad Larijani.
In the interview he pointed out that some of the European leaders are not properly informed on human rights in Iran. “One of the European representatives stated that circumcising girls must be stopped in Iran. It seems like this person did not know much geography because he must have confused Iran for an African country,” he said.
The Secretary insisted that the countries that that have bad human rights records cannot be defenders of it. “The American government who managed Abu-Gharib and Guantanamo shouldn’t speak about human rights,” he added.
"Iran’s report in this council was very professional. We were the only country that gave a biennial report, some countries skip this part. This report was produced by various government agencies and ministries,” Larijani explained. “The council’s review of Iran was positive. Around 118 countries gave recommendations, 7 countries including Britain, America, Saudi Arabia and Australia apparently don’t know the difference between being offensive and giving advice.”
“The tone of these talks had to be interactive and non- biased. Universality should not be imposed. Universality means everybody should be involved,” the minister stated, “The people of the world have now realized that the face of human rights is Donald Trump. We and our allies must be the leaders of human rights so that countries such as Yemen, in which thousands of children are killed every day, aren’t destroyed for profit and oil. Oil should never be considered more valuable than human life.”
Larijani also reminded in the interview that sanctions against Iran are blocking necessary medicine and treatment needed for Iranian children. This is what America calls “democratic” but this view on human rights needs to be changed immediately.
