TEHRAN, Apr. 25 (MNA) – During the 7th meeting of the Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC), members welcomed Iran's suggestions on human rights.

IPHRC, which is an independent body of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), held its 7th meeting online hosted by Saudi Arabia.

The participants discussed women's human rights, children's rights, development rights, combating Islamophobia as well as the human rights situation of Muslim minorities in non-member countries, the situation of Muslims in Myanmar, in the Central African Republic, in Europe, and in the United States. They also conferred on the functioning of the OIC human rights watchdog in Jammu and Kashmir.

As Iran's representative at the event Hossein Rezvani said on Sun., Iran put forward seven suggestions on various sectors including holding a one-day seminar in Tehran to introduce the facilities, infrastructure, and outstanding achievements of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the field of artificial limb production and making Iran a regional hub for manufacturing such products.

The other six proposals focussed on women's rights, the need to confront Islamophobia, strong condemnation of the inhumane acts of the occupying regime and systematic violation of Palestinian rights, and etc.
