US Doesn’t Hold High Moral Ground on Human Rights

Iran on Saturday dismissed US allegations of human rights abuses as "biased" and "politically motivated", chiding Washington for the failure to improve its own human rights record. In releasing the US State Department’s global human rights report for 2017 on Friday, acting secretary of state John Sullivan labeled Iran, China, Russia and North Korea as "forces of instability" and "morally reprehensible" governments that it claimed violated human rights within their borders on a daily basis, Reuters reported.
"The Islamic Republic regards the annual report of the state department, particularly the claims about human rights, as totally biased and politically motivated," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in a statement carried by IRNA.
