Syria affirmed its rejection of the Western countries' insistence on turning the Human Rights Council and its mechanisms into a tool for practicing defamation and targeting the countries of the south with campaigns motivated by political considerations, stressing that passing non-consensual resolutions and establishing mechanisms against Iran is a further politicization of the Council's work, and an unacceptable departure from the principles on which it was based.

Ambassador Alla made it clear that Syria commends Iran's commitment to the promotion and protection of human rights and its constructive cooperation with the relevant United Nations mechanisms, including the universal periodic review mechanism and treaty mechanisms. Non-consensual and the establishment of new mechanisms that are not accepted by the concerned state, is a further politicization of the Council's work and an unacceptable departure from the principles on which it was based.

Ambassador Alla expressed Syria's condemnation of acts of violence and terrorism that affect civilians and the forces of order in Iran, and commends the authorities for their wisdom and responsibility in dealing with them, and calls on the Human Rights Council to respect the judicial process in Iran and give due consideration to the information provided by the authorities about the circumstances of Mahsa Amini's death and the riots. And the sabotage that followed and about the legal measures taken in this area, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Special Procedures Mandates Campaign calls for a commitment to impartiality and objectivity and not to lose sight of this information.
