"The performance of those who claim are human rights defenders in terms of accepting Afghan, Syrian, and Iraqi refugees and prioritizing Ukrainian refugees, is contrary to their claims," the Iranian diplomat also noted.

"Iran has accommodated hundreds of thousands of new refugees in the recent crisis in #Afghanistan without the international organizations' support and is now providing services to millions of #refugees," he added.

In relevant comments, the Embassy of Iran to Kabul wrote on its Twitter account on Sunday that “June 20 is named after the World Refugee Day. Iran is one of the largest refugee-hosting countries in the world with its generous reception of refugees and despite oppressive and cruel US sanctions, it has been a good host for refugees which has offered quality training, education, medical and healthcare and livelihood services while rich countries usually try to avoid accepting refugees.”
