Speaker's Advidor: EU Parliament's Anti-Iran Resolution Meant to Appease US“Hostile @Europarl_EN Res is sycophancy for Biden&violation of Iranians' rights," Amir-Abdollahian wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday.

“Killers of kids w/special diseases via sanctions&hosting terrorist MEK are ineligible to speak abt HR, ask release of dual-national spies&murderer of Iranian scientist”, he said, adding, "Europe thinks abt its interests."

In a relevant development earlier on Saturday, Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission in a statement strongly condemned the recent anti-Iranian resolution issued by the European Parliament.

"The European Parliament that today issues a resolution against the execution and protection of criminals against the national security of our country is the same institution that not only did not react in the face of the cowardly assassination of innocent Iranian scientists but on the contrary always supported, sheltered terrorists, including MKO," the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said in its statement.

The Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, meantime, denounced the intervention of British Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Iran’s internal affairs, stupid recommendations of the Committee against Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and French government's anti-human rights stance in support of a criminal.

"While officials of terrorist and the criminal Israeli regime have confessed to carrying out assassinations in Iran, European officials and members of parliament have never dared to criticize those criminals," the statement further read.

It pointed out that If members of the European Parliament are able to put aside the "shameless support of the western countries for the Zionists and the terrorists and murderous dictators, then the world public opinion can listen to them".

"There is no doubt that Westerners, with their negative and dark backgrounds in support of terrorists, dictators, warmongers, and assassins, are never worthy of criticism of Iran's actions," the statement added.

On Thursday, the European Parliament adopted two resolutions against what it called “the human rights situation in China and Iran”.

In relevant remarks in September, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said it is nothing new to see some European governments indifferent and silent in the face of the biggest human rights violations by themselves and their allies, and rejected their statement on human rights conditions in Iran.

“It is not the first time that some EU governments are indifferent and silent toward the gravest human rights violations in their own countries,” Khatibzadeh said, describing the EU measure to submit an anti-Iran joint statement to the UN Human Rights Council as unacceptable.

"The statement adopts a selective approach and is invalid, as it is in basic defiance of the promotional approach to human rights," he added.

“They [Europeans] are competing in the sale of weapons worth billions of dollars to Saudi regime and regional dictators to kill the defenseless Yemenis,” the spokesman noted.

“While they call repression of protests, killing of blacks, massacre of minorities, especially Muslims, persecution of prisoners and repression of migrants inside the EU borders as law enforcement, they call fulfillment of judicial moves under criminal law by a competent court in other countries as ‘violation of human rights’,” he said.

“This double-standard approach indicates dishonesty of this group of countries in supporting human rights and politicization of this concept,” Khatibzadeh stated.

He reiterated that promoting human rights at the national, regional and international levels within the framework of religious obligations and adherence to the Constitution, domestic laws and international treaties, is one of Iran’s permanent priorities and in practice, it is also committed to complying with it.

“At the same time, Iran advises some European states, seeking to announce their intentions as the EU stance, to put the pursuit of improving human rights among themselves and their regional allies on a serious agenda,” Khatibzadeh said.
