A Member of the Islamic World Peace Forum, Mohsen Pak Ayeen, made his remarks on the anniversary of "Islamic Human Rights and Human Dignity Day", calling the US sanctions amid coronavirus crisis and its hostility toward Iran’ airliner and highlighting the fact that as respecting human dignity and human rights have been accentuated many times in the Qur'an, the Islamic Republic of Iran considers itself obliged to respect human rights.
Highlighting US sanctions amid Coronavirus crisis, he refers to Iran’s health assistance to countries involved in battle against the virus, and emphasized that the international community is responsible to expand international cooperation and liaison during the time of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, and disease, and the importance of this collaboration has become doubled during the pandemic.
“during the time of which all international institutions and communities were looking forward to having a cooperation by lifting sanctions on the countries stricken deeply by the pandemic, the US’ act of health terrorism and violation of human rights by escalating sanctions against countries like Iran was blatant.” He noted.
Moreover, Pak Ayeen, continued referring to the recent hostility of the US jet fighters against the Mahan airliner over the Syrian sky, and pinpointed that: “beside being an obvious violation of human rights, the harassment was a true example of interference in the internal affairs of an independent country. That intimidation endangers the lives of many innocent people. Looking from Islamic human rights’ point of view, that utterly deserves condemnation and punishment is considered as a must.”
He also urged international community to become united in order to fight against such anti-human policies taken by US.
