TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran on Tuesday condemned the European Union’s move to blacklist several Iranian officials and institutions on a charge of "human rights violation”.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns this move and considers it invalid,” Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a statement. "Such acts are committed by those who claim to be supporters of, and falsely preach (respect for) human rights with political motives, but they have not only remained silent in the face of violations of Iranian people’s rights due to the United States’ inhuman and illegal sanctions, but also approved of such violations," he said.
