Foreign Ministry spokesman reveals US aim in region

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast who has traveled to Cuba at a press conference in Havana on Saturday said the US claims of human rights are a double-standard policy.

Referring to the US inhuman actions in the notorious Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib prisons, Mehmanparast asked the question how the Americans and their media express concern over human rights situation in certain countries, but they do not pay attention to news on fate of people of Bahrain and Yemen.

About the western military intervention in Libya, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman said there are serious doubts about US and NATO intentions in that country and it seems that the aim of operation is not protection of people but oil wells and contracts of American oil companies with Libya.

The remarks by the spokesman of Iranian foreign ministry is a reference to the western political and news media currents which have concentrated on the baseless claims of the US officials regarding Iran.

One of the US common methods in recent years has been to externalize the issues regarding Iran at the level of the UN Security Council and the United Nations and the so-called human rights organizations. The US officials’ claims against Iran are brought up with the aim of diverting the public opinion from the recent developments in the Middle East and North Africa.

In fact, the United States which is the main factor for the massacre of hundreds of thousands of innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan is trying to distract the public opinion through smear campaign and bringing up baseless claims while the main factor of the regional problems is the US intervention and the behavior of the despotic regimes who are not ready to respond to the people’s demands due to their dependence on trans-regional powers.

It goes without saying that the western silence and double standard is a failed policy. Undoubtedly, the regional regimes would pay a heavy price by insisting on the continuation of this policy.
