“The protection of human rights has always been one of the most important slogans and claims of US officials in the international system,” the statement said. Government policy is a gross and systematic violation of human rights.

He believes that this issue has also posed complex challenges to well-known human rights norms and frameworks.

* Iran is one of the countries most strongly influenced by the US instrumental use of human rights

Numerous cases of human rights violations by the Iranian people stem from unilateral US sanctions.

1. Within the United States, there is no targeted monitoring of violations of the rights of minorities such as Muslims and people of color, and hatred is widely pursued by officials and the police;

2. It is the largest supporter of the Israeli occupation regime, which, through its material and non-material support of the regime, provides the basis for the continuation of human rights violations in the occupied territories;

3. The oppressed and defenseless people of Yemen are daily targeted by American weapons sold for financial and commercial purposes to the aggressor and warring countries, while opposing any end to the crisis in this country;

4. Using the two concepts of human rights and counterterrorism as a tool, the United States has physically eliminated the greatest celebrities and heroes of the fight against terrorism, the latest example of which is the cowardly assassination of Sardar Soleimani by the US government in 2020. .

* The US government is not a supporter, but a major violator of human rights

The statement said: “As emphasized by the thematic rapporteurs of the UN Human Rights Council, the assassination of Sardar Soleimani is considered an arbitrary violation of the right to life and is contrary to the provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Declaration.” Universal is human rights. Based on what has been said and for a number of other reasons that are being added to every day, the Islamic Republic of Iran has once again condemned the political approach to human rights and the application of double human rights standards by the United States and does not support this government.
