Iran Claims US Sanctions Violate International Law


“These repeated acts for special political purposes of the US government, to impose unilateral sanctions, based on baseless claims of human rights infringement, against individuals or entities of independent countries explicitly violate the principles of the international law and the international human rights and are illegal and illegitimate,” asserted on Friday the spokesperson for Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Bahram Ghasemi.

He made the remarks after the US government added an Iranian organization and an Iranian judiciary official to the list of human rights sanctions of the US against Iran.

“The US government, due to its unacceptable domestic and international history, is not liable to comment on the human rights conditions in other countries,” highlighted the Iranian diplomat.

The spokesperson of Iran’s Foreign Ministry stressed that no international entity or organization has ever given such an authority to the US government to evaluate the conditions of human rights in other countries according to its own standpoint. He denounced the unilateral measures of the US describing them against UN resolutions and with negative consequences for individuals across the globe.

“The US government takes such interfering steps to cover up its own human rights problems and deviate the public opinion of the world from crimes and the support for systematic and obvious violation of human rights by its regional allies, especially the Zionist regime, which have a black report card on human rights,” reiterated Mr. Ghasemi
