Iran has denied violations of religious freedom after participants in a meeting hosted by the United States accused it of persecuting religious minorities.
"The United States and other violators of the most natural and obvious basic human rights are not in a position to make a one-sided and biased judgment about other countries with different cultures and ethnicities," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in remarks published Monday. 
On July 26, participants in the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom held in Washington issued a statement on Iran, in which they said, "As representatives of the international community, we stand together in condemning the systematic, ongoing and egregious violations of religious freedom taking place in Iran and call on authorities to ensure religious freedom for all."
