The issue of human rights has become a political tool in the hands of world powers for their double standards in this regard, Iran's foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi said, Press TV reported with reference to ISNA.
"Currently, [the issue of] human rights has become a political weapon and everybody is aware of this," Salehi told.
"Our country does not stand lower than other countries in terms of human rights; and we know countries where basics of human rights are not observed, but there is no outcry against these countries," he added.
