Selective Approach to Rights of Children Harms UN Credibility

Iran on Monday called on the United Nations to bring to justice all perpetrators of crimes against children, saying that a narrow and selective approach to human rights undermines the role and credibility of the world body.  
"We call for accountability for war crimes against children committed by anyone and anywhere," Iran's UN Ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo said in a debate at the Security Council, according to a text of his speech published by IRNA. 
The session was held days after the release of a UN annual report, which said the number of children affected by armed conflict and the severity of grave violations affecting them increased in the past year. 
Over 21,000 grave violations of children's rights have been verified by the UN in 2017 alone, an increase from previous years, according to the report.
