TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran expressed concern over human rights in France and the wave of Islamophobia in Europe.
The remarks were made by Secretary of Human Rights Headquarters of Iran’s Judiciary Mohammad Javad Larijani in a meeting with French Secretary of State for Human Rights Rama Yade in Paris on Wednesday.
Urging all countries to prevent taking a selective attitude towards the issue of human rights, Larijani condemned “double-standard policy adopted by certain states regarding the human rights issue”.
Speaking to the Islamic republic news agency following the meeting, Larijani said he had welcomed Yade’s proposal on finding a solution to the issue and reaching agreement between the sides.
“I told her that instead of holding talks via media, it is better to prepare grounds for attending face-to-face meetings,” he said.
Criticizing the West’s so-called support for human rights, he stressed that such an attitude would lead to more problems.
The Iranian official further called on the international community to help solve human rights problems.
