Iran’s Parl. condemns US withdrawal from UNHRC

TEHRAN, Jun. 26 (MNA) – The Iranian Parliament’s human rights faction issued a statement on Tuesday condemning the US withdrawal from Unite Nations Human Rights Council.

After threatening to leave the body for about one year, US officially announced withdrawal from UNHRC accusing it to be anti-Israeli, the statement reads.

Elsewhere, it highlighted that pulling out from UNHRC proved that the United States is following interests of a regime which is the ultimate symbol for human rights violations,

It adds that the history of Israel is full of various human rights violations, including terror of scientists and journalists and attacking defenseless people and kids, says another part of the statement.

The withdrawal leads to nothing but more isolation for the United States, the statement says, adding, US withdrawals from various pacts and bodies such as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Paris Agreement and UNHRC is disrespect to the international community.

The statement further adds that US pullout cannot be a barrier against actual obtaining of human rights and political pressures cannot hide Zionist regime’s crimes.
