UN Rights Report Politically Motivated

The Foreign Ministry described a recent report by the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, as "politically motivated", saying such selective approaches will hamper the promotion of human rights in the world in the long run.
Reacting to Shaheed's latest report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, said such reports are based on the views of a few countries that misuse the international human rights mechanisms to harm other states, Tasnim News Agency reported.
In his most recent report, Shaheed has once again made sweeping allegations against Iran, raising concerns about the rate of executions and flaws in the administration of justice in Iran.
Ansari underlined that such "selective" approaches not only fail to improve the status of human rights in the world, but also have downgraded the issue to the level of political disputes among the countries. He said such an attitude will impair the promotion of human rights in the long run
"We believe that the content of the rapporteur's report on the Islamic Republic of Iran is biased and has been prepared with the political intents and provocatively," he said.
Ansari said Shaheed's report has been made on the basis of unauthentic information rather than the realties on the ground.
The spokesman reaffirmed Iran's commitment to promoting human rights according to its constitution and religious values, saying Tehran is drawing up a civil rights charter to that end.
Ansari stressed that promotion of human rights will materialize only through cooperation and dialogue, and avoidance of unequal and selective approaches.
