Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has the will and is seriously determined to further uphold citizens' rights based on the progressive Islamic principles and the Constitution.
Qassemi made the remarks in reaction to a recent report by the UN Secretary General António Guterres on the situation of human rights in Iran.
Referring to the report prepared and released for presentation at the ongoing session of the UN Human Rights Council, Qassemi said: 'As we have witnessed before, such reports have many fundamental flaws both in nature and from procedural point of view and thus have no values in the eyes of the Islamic Republic.'
The Foreign Ministry spokesman said the UN chief's report, besides having many flaws, is based on some unfair resolutions and contains unreliable sources and information that are totally untrue and valueless.
Moreover, Qassemi said, by ignoring the measures taken and progress made by the Islamic Republic in the field of human rights, the report has been prepared in an imbalanced and impartial manner.
