A senior Iranian diplomat has dismissed Western political allegations against human rights institutions in the Islamic Republic, saying the US is engineering such moves, press TV reported.
In a politically-motivated move, Western countries are making efforts to pass a draft resolution at the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly on alleged human rights violation in the Islamic Republic.
"The adoption of such political resolutions, particularly on legal issues, at the United Nations will be a black stain on the (reputation of) the body," IRIB quoted Secretary General of Iran's High Council for Human Rights
Mohammad Javad Larijani as saying in New York on Tuesday.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran will not back down on its position to firmly defend the Islamic establishment," he emphasized.
The Iranian official further pointed out that the proposed resolution is based on an "unprofessional text and includes blatant lies and allegations."
He added that such political moves pursue no objective other than targeting human rights institutions in Iran and said, "The US government is organizing them."
The judiciary chief advisor for international affairs further stated that the Iranian nation has had the privilege to experience the only true democracy in the Middle East over the past three decades.
"This experience has turned the Islamic Republic into the most successful country in modern science and technology, on the one hand, and the leading country in the region in terms of political development, on the other," Larijani said.
He noted that Iran will explicitly express its legitimate position during the 65th UN General Assembly meeting on human rights, held in New York from October 26-November 20.
The Iranian diplomat criticized the Israeli regime's anti-human measures in Gaza and other Palestinian regions, insisting that Western silence towards such blatant and repeated abuses of human rights demonstrates that the concept of violence has turned into a 'plaything' at the hands of Western media.
