TEHRAN, June 13 (MNA) - Iran’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Tuesday to the European Union, calling on the bloc to take more influential steps to prevent the violation of human rights in some European countries.

The statement was sent to Austria, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the European Union.


Iran has expressed serious concern about the resumption of street clashes, the imposition of martial law, the labor law crisis, the regretful state of prisons, police brutality, the torture of prisoners, wrong policies toward immigrants, and the deplorable state of the judiciary and social system in France.


The statement also calls upon the EU to take more serious steps to prevent the restriction of social and religious freedom in its campaign against terrorism, long detentions without charges, and violence toward and mistreatment of immigrants and asylum seekers in Britain.


In addition, Iran has insisted that the bloc make efforts to eliminate Islamophobia in the schools of France and Britain and pass a law to prevent affronts to Islam and Muslims in EU member countries.
