TEHRAN – The Iranian presidential advisor on ethnic and religious minorities’ affairs has said that there are certain people who seek to impede the government’s efforts to uphold the minorities’ rights.
 
According to the ISNA news agency, Ali Younesi said on Thursday that there are obstacles in the way of promoting the minorities’ groups in the country because there are certain people who do not want the government to safeguard the rights of people from all walks of life.
 
Younesi also commented on the atrocities committed by the terrorist group of ISIL in Iraq and said that the group has targeted the Iraqi Yazidis because they are of Iranian origin and have affinity with the Iranian culture.
