Iran Criticizes U.N. Resolution On Human Rights Abuses
Iran said on Tuesday a U.N. resolution that condemns the Islamic Republic for public executions, floggings, arbitrary sentences, torture and discrimination against women is baseless.
Canada sponsored the human rights resolution that was adopted by a vote of 71 in favor, 54 against and 55 abstentions at the U.N. General Assembly meeting.
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told the Iranian ISNA Students news agency the resolution "is not based on documents, is remote from the current realities of Iran, is based on distorted, unreliable sources and is discredited."
He added that the resolution was "a completely political act" and was intended for propaganda against Iran.
