Tehran rejects Washington's allegations in 2019 'human rights' report

Tehran dismisses the Iran section of the US administration's annual "human rights" report as untrue and politically motivated, saying Washington has turned into the "biggest violator" of the Iranian people's human rights by slapping the nation with unlawful economic sanctions.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi was referring to the so-called Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2018, in which the US State Department has once again leveled a host of unfounded accusations of rights abuses against the Islamic Republic.

The report, which was released on March 13, claimed that Iran's human rights record had "remained extremely poor and worsened in several key areas." The report also singled out Washington's other adversaries, including China, Russia and North Korea like in previous years.
