Iran dismisses US criticism of its election to UN NGO committee

Published: 04.24.14, 23:44 / Israel News

UNITED NATIONS - Iran on Thursday rejected US criticism of its election to the United Nations' committee on non-governmental organizations (NGOs), saying Washington's rebuke came from "baseless accusations" and violated the spirit of cooperation needed at the world body.

 

US Ambassador Samantha Power on Wednesday said, "The unopposed candidacy of Iran, where authorities regularly detain human rights defenders, subjecting many to torture, abuse, and violations of due process, is a particularly troubling outcome."

 

Hamid Babaei, spokesman for Iran's UN mission in New York, vehemently rejected Power's remarks.

 

"Iran categorically rejects baseless accusations raised in the statement of (Power) regarding status of human rights and civil liberties in the Islamic Republic of Iran and find these assertions both unconstructive, obstructive and against the spirit of cooperation between sovereign member states," he said.
