Tehran, YJC. Tehran has dismissed as unrealistic and biased a recent report by the UN special rapporteur on the human rights status in country.

Marzieh Afkham, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman stated on Saturday the report by Ahmed Shaheed has been filed in contempt of the UN's human rights report making methods and international regulations.

She said Iran is really concerned about the unfair and unscientific performance of the UN special rapporteur.

Afkham said Shaheed’s report has been prepared based on "incorrect and illegal” approaches.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is well aware of its national and international in the field of human rights and has always maintained good and broad cooperation with international mechanism in this regard,” Afkham asserted.

She underlined Iran’s commitment to the improvement of civil rights and the rights of minorities and women.

The diplomat noted the country has taken very big steps in that regard and would proceed with its efforts.

In a report which was released on March 12, the UN rapporteur accused Iran of violating the rights of murderers, jailed drug traffickers, and other criminals.
