Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh dismissed the report, noting that it is quite clear why such custom-tailored reports try to blackwash the situation of human rights in Iran.
In a statement on Wednesday, Saeed Khatibzadeh said Iran believes the politically-motivated behavior and selective moves of the US and certain European governments have always dealt the heaviest blow to the principle of human rights.
He also described the approach, remarks, and moves of certain European countries as an instance of interference in Iran's internal affairs, and said authorities at the relevant level have taken, and will continue to take, necessary measures in reaction to the move.
"It is quite surprising and unbelievable to us that these countries have not only refused to show any reaction to the blatant violation of the Iranian nation's rights caused by the US' inhumane policy of maximum pressure and its cruel and anti-human sanctions, but are also fanning its flames and practically joining it through their inaction," Khatibzadeh added.
Earlier this month, the Iranian foreign ministry had called on the foreign embassies in the country to respect the diplomatic principles and avoid interference in the internal affairs of Iran.
Khatibzadeh said at the time that Iran condemned the recent interventionist remarks made by German envoy to Tehran, saying, "Naturally, such a behavior by any other embassy will not be tolerated."
He elaborated on summoning German ambassador to the Iranian foreign ministry, and said that the German diplomat had no phone call with the foreign ministry.
He noted that anyone who is aware of diplomatic affairs knows the political and legal meaning and concept of summoning.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned German Ambassador to Tehran Hans-Udo Muzel over meddlesome tweets of the embassy.
The Ministry, issuing a statement, strongly condemned the non-diplomatic measure of the German embassy, describing it interference in Iran’s internal affairs.
“Interfering in the laws and judiciary processes of the Islamic Republic is not acceptable and will not be tolerated,” the statement said, urging the embassy to stick to its diplomatic duties instead of acting beyond them.
Muzel , for his part, promised to reflect the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s protest to Berlin.
The remarks came after some European missions and envoys to Iran, including the German ambassador, made comments in reaction to the execution of 27‑year‑old Iranian Navid Afkari who had received a death sentence for murdering a citizen in 2018.
