The secretary of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights says the politicization of the issue of human rights has contributed to the spread of terrorist groups, such as al Qaeda and the so-called Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria.  Mohammad Javad Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with Chairman of the Human Rights Committee of the Italian Senate Luigi Manconi in Rome, ISNA reported on Wednesday.

“It is regrettable that in recent years the issue of human rights has been extremely tainted by political objectives, and some countries, including the United States, have abused this scared word,” Larijani said.  Senator Manconi said Italy attaches high importance to human rights and welcomes talks and exchange of visits in this regard.
