'Israel' backers in no position to talk about human rights: Kanaani
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson says human rights violators are better to look at their own shameful record and stop the political use of human rights.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani considered on Thursday that the backers of the Israeli occupation are in no position to comment on human rights in other places.
On Twitter, Kanaani pointed out that "those with record of committing crimes against other nations and backing an occupier and terrorist regime, don't have moral/legal right to comment on human rights in other countries."
Those w record of committing crimes against other nations & backing an occupier & terrorist regime, don't have moral/legal right to comment on human rights in other countries.

The Iranian diplomat stressed that "human rights is a sacred value and Iran believes that it’s Islamic, humane, legal & moral imperative to promote it."
Kanaani underlined that "those human rights violators are better to look at their own shameful record and stop political and instrumental use of human rights."
He added that the United States government and "many other self-proclaimed advocates of human rights are convicted in the court of human conscience because of their despicable historical conduct."
On Monday, Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned the German ambassador to Tehran to protest Germany's repeated interference in Iranian internal affairs following an anti-Iran resolution that was passed by the UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR), which was proposed by Berlin earlier last week.
At the request of Germany and Iceland, the UNHCR held a meeting to discuss alleged "human rights violations in Iran." The convention concluded with a majority vote to establish an independent international fact-finding mission to probe into the alleged human rights abuses.
The head of the Western Europe Division of the Iranian Foreign Ministry protested Berlin's Ambassador Hans-Udo Muzel's "interventionist and baseless statements" against Iran, while also informing him that Tehran rejects the UNHCR's resolution that is politicizing human rights issues and using them as an instrumental, further stressing that Tehran won't accept nor cooperate with the UNHCR's resolution.
