“The crimes and killings which have happened in the past years with the direct presence and partnership of the European states and the US are so painful and inhumane that the West’s dialogue on human rights has been turned into a historical tragedy,” Jazayeri said on Wednesday.
“At present, the EU influenced by the US and international Zionism is pressuring and harming millions of people in Africa, Asia and other parts of the world by imposing food and medicine sanctions and cultural and political offenses,” he added.
Stressing that Iran will not allow the West to speak about its human rights situation, Jazayeri said the European states that allow the killing of people, promotion of moral corruption and decadence, including the spread of illegitimate relationships and homosexuality, all in opposition to God’s words cannot express a view about respect for human rights.
Iran has always lashed out at the western countries for using human rights issues as a tool and pretext for pressurizing independent states to conceal their own crimes and wrong deeds.
In relevant remarks in December 2012, Iranian Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani lambasted the West’s double-standard policies and stances on human rights issues, and said the hegemonic powers used human rights as an instrument to pressure independent states.
“West Not Qualified to Speak about Iran’s Human Rights”
“Unfortunately, the westerners have a completely double-standard look at human rights issues and use them as a tool against the countries which don’t depend on them,” Amoli Larijani said in a meeting with Sri Lankan Justice Minister Rauff Hakeem in Tehran at the time.
He said despite the double-standard views of the West about human rights, the Eastern states have a proper and humane view and “the human rights issue enjoys an exalted position in the Eastern countries”.
