‘West not qualified to talk about human rights’

March 11, 2018

TEHRAN – The secretary of the High Council for Human Rights in Iran has condemned Western countries for supporting terrorists groups in the Middle East, saying they are not qualified to speak about human rights.

“In our view, American and Europe are not qualified to speak about human rights issues due to the crimes they have committed,” Mohammad Javad Larijani said on Saturday.

Pointing to the Yemen conflict, Larijani said those violating the rights of the Yemeni nation are extensively supported by the West, while human rights allegations are raised against the defenders of Yemeni nation.
