Iran goes head-on against global hegemony, vows to maintain redlines
Iran vows to preserve redlines on several sovereign policies as Western hegemonic powers increase pressure on Tehran to extract demands.
The riots in Iran will not prevent the country from standing firm on its redlines when it comes to certain policies, despite reports that Western countries are counting that internal instability will cause Tehran to back down on some of those policies, Iranian officials have stated, as reported by Mehr News Agency.
Western countries have been pushing Iran by inciting unrest in the country to force it to yield to foreign demands on many issues that go against Iranian national interest, especially its peaceful nuclear program.
At the forefront of foreign countries are European states who have been part of the JCPOA or supporters of it, which have in recent years called for a more diplomatic approach in Tehran, which represents a major shift in their political approach and even threatens the possibility of ever reviving the nuclear deal, at least in the foreseen future.
In the latest series of Iran's protests against the irresponsible and hostile interference in its internal affairs by several EU states, Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned the German ambassador on Monday and conveyed a strong message to Berlin for its anti-Iran statements and actions, most recently the resolution that was passed in the UN Human Rights Council, which was proposed by Berlin earlier last week.
“Following Berlin’s spearheading in the holding of a special meeting of the UN Human Rights Council on the recent developments in Iran and the repetition of the meddlesome and baseless claims of the German officials,” said the Ministry.
“During the meeting held at the Foreign Ministry, strong protest of the Islamic Republic of Iran regarding the interventionist remarks of the German officials was conveyed to the ambassador," the Ministry continued.
On Thursday, the UN Human Rights Council, at the request of Germany and Iceland, attended a meeting to discuss "human rights violations in Iran" during what is today the largest attempt at a color revolution in recent Iranian history.
The council voted in favor of creating a special "fact-finding" mission to look into the alleged violations.
"The German envoy was told that the recent resolution of the special meeting of the UN Human Rights Council, was a wrong step based on a highly political and instrumental approach to human rights that is totally rejected. It was also reaffirmed that the Islamic Republic will not cooperate with any mechanism defined on the basis of the resolution.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will not engage in any cooperation, whatsoever, with the politicized committee established in the name of a fact-finding mission,” commented Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani on the event, slamming Berlin's weaponization of human rights and its employment for political interests against sovereign states.
Earlier this month, the Iranian High Council for Human Rights criticized Western countries and international human rights organizations for ignoring obvious evidence of human rights violations in their country, namely the non-reaction to the terrorist attack on the Shah-e-Cheragh shrine in Shiraz, Iran, which claimed the lives of 15, including men, women, and children.
Western human rights organizations along with their corresponding states have demonstrated double standards and selective humanity as they "completely disregarded" and presented a "lack of reaction to terrorist acts when it comes to Iran."
In recent remarks, and as reports surfaced that the West is increasing pressure on Iran to place pre-conditions on any prospected negotiations between the Western countries and Tehran regarding many issues most importantly its nuclear program and relations with Russia, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian called out the US on the attempts and reiterated his country's hard adherence to principle policy issues.
“The American officials speculated over crossing our nuclear redlines in light of the recent uprising in Iran but instead they had been told Iran is poised to reach a durable and stable deal with regards to observing our own redlines,” the top diplomat said.
“We do not need America and Europe, who have a long history of violating human rights and have registered a dark history with regard to exploiting nations and countries, to be claimants of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he added, noting that the E3 (France, UK, Germany), along with the Americans and Zionists, have misread the actual circumstances and made "meddlesome statements".
Iran's leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei earlier last week reaffirmed that Western countries seek to overthrow the Iranian government but stressed that they "will not succeed in that," stressing the need to confront rioters amid Iran's riots.
The Iranian leader reminded the Basij of what the US said almost a decade ago about overthrowing 6 countries and reaffirmed that this process serves not only to increase its hegemony but also to weaken Iran for geopolitical and financial reasons.
“Negotiations will not solve our problems with America. Only one thing would solve our problem with America and that is giving it concessions, but not just one concession," rather a continuous stream of concessions.
Iran's main fight today is with world arrogant powers, and not with saboteurs causing unrest in the country, Sayyed Khamenei said.
"The major fight is with the global hegemony."
