“Targeted discrimination against blacks in the United States by the country’s police and judicial system and the crackdown on popular protests following the recent incident are a clear example of the violation of the rights of people of color in the United States, which annually issues numerous reports about human rights violations in independent countries,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said in reference to the ongoing racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, triggered by the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman on August 9. 
 
In addition, Afkham called on the United States as a signatory to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination to adhere to the provisions of the convention.
