(MENAFN) Iran has robustly responded to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) that voted on Thursday for a decision to establish an independent fact-finding mission to probe alleged human rights violations in Iran, mainly on the contradiction of women and children.
The decision supported by 25 nations, such as the United States and several other European nations, Latin American, Asian as well as African countries, was put forward by Germany and Iceland. On the other hand, six nations - China, Pakistan, Cuba, Eritrea, Venezuela in addition to Armenia refused the move. 16 others abstained.
Khadijeh Karimi, deputy of Iran’s vice leader for Women and Family Affairs, condemned the Western works and determination as part of a “politically motivated move of Germany to distort the situation of human rights in Iran.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran deeply regrets that the Human Rights Council is abused once again by some arrogant states to antagonize a sovereign UN member state that is fully committed to its obligation to promote and protect human rights,” Karimi stated.
