Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has accused the West of adopting a double standard policy when it comes to the issue of human rights.
Zarif says the issue of human rights shouldn't be used as a political tool. The Iranian foreign minister made the remarks in a joint press conference with his Luxemburg counterpart Jean Asselborn. Referring to the ongoing presidential election in Syria, Zarif said that the voting will let Syrians determine their own future. He further said that Iran respects the demands of the Syrian people and will continue to offer help to the conflict-ridden nation.
