Official Slams West’s Double Standards on Rights

TEHRAN – The spokesperson for the Iranian foreign ministry on Sunday deplored Western governments’ fake advocacy for human rights, saying they have given an arbitrary definition of riots and protests after classifying terrorists as good and bad.
In a post on his Twitter account, Nasser Kanaani lashed out at those who have presented themselves as advocates of human rights, while their regimes have a dark record of plotting coups and conspiracies, interference, and starting devastating wars that have claimed millions of lives.
The irony is that despite their fake human rights gestures, those authorities have failed to hide their anti-human rights nature, the spokesman stated.
“The popular protests in the UK, Germany, France, Canada and Australia are bad and deserve crackdown, but the riots in their target countries are good and deserve support,” Kanaani wrote with a hint of sarcasm.
His comments came after British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said the police will get “whatever powers they need” from the government to crack down on disruptive protests by groups such as Just Stop Oil.
