Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations Office and international organizations in Geneva, Gennady Gatilov, confirmed that the resolution issued by the United Nations Human Rights Council against Iran is illegitimate.
Gatilov said in a televised interview today: Such a decision has a purely political context, and aims to blame Iran simply because the West does not like its policy.
Gatilov added, "We consider this decision illegitimate because the establishment of fact-finding missions must take place with the approval of the concerned country, and in this particular case, no consultations or agreements on establishing such a mechanism with Iran have been concluded or implemented," pointing out that the aim is to exert pressure. policy on Iran.
Yesterday, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the decision of the Human Rights Council to establish a fact-finding mission into the actions taken by Tehran during the recent events, describing it as an “anti-Iranian act” by a small group of Western countries to perpetuate its interests.
