Rights Debate With Europe Proposed

Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani proposed that the Islamic Republic and Europe begin discussions about human rights, provided Iran would also have the opportunity of questioning the shortcomings of Europeans regarding human rights.
“I suggest that the [Judiciary’s] Human Rights Council, the Foreign Ministry and the Supreme National Security Council pave the way for talks with European countries [on human rights],” Ayatollah Amoli Larijani said in an address to a cultural ceremony in Tehran on Wednesday, Tasnim News Agency reported.
He underlined that the US must be excluded from any such discussions because “Americans are only after deception”.
The top judiciary official stressed that the primary condition for holding such talks should be equal chances for each side to question the other.
“We also have things to say about human rights in Europe. We have questions and views about Europe’s approach toward humans, Islamophobia in Europe and France’s ban on hijab,” he said.
Ayatollah Amoli Larijani said Iran will agree to discuss human rights with Europeans if they agree that the debate would be reciprocal and they would be challenged as well.
