He said the British envoy has been notified of Iran’s strong protest at the “riotous and terrorist” conduct of a number of “anti-Revolution terrorist elements and those opposing democracy” who have disrupted the process of the 13th Iranian presidential election in a number of cities such as London and Birmingham by insulting the voters and the executive personnel and the assault and battery against one of the voters.

“The British ambassador has been told that the government and police of that country (UK) have failed to fulfil their duties to ensure the security of the polling stations and the voters,” Khatibzadeh said.

The spokesman also noted that the Foreign Ministry officials have reminded the UK envoy that democracy materializes at the ballot boxes not in the moves of a few number of rioters on the streets.

“In the meeting, strong criticism has been leveled at the naughty and divisive performance of the UK-based Persian media, including BBC Persian and Iran International, which tried to promote a boycott of election, encourage people to attend street protests, and disrupt the process of election with their programs and types of news making. It was emphasized that such measures that run counter to democracy and encourage riotous moves will remain in the memory of Iranian people,” he added.

There are reports that a number of anti-Revolution forces in the foreign states have harassed and attacked the Iranian expats attending the presidential election in the polling stations abroad.

An Iranian woman in England’s Birmingham reportedly suffered injuries to her head in an attack as she was going to the polling place to vote.

Western Support for Terrorism – Iran Condemns

1- Iranian ambassador strongly condemns report by some British MPs

Tehran Times

TEHRAN – Iran’s ambassador to London has censured a report by a number of British parliamentarians, saying it backs regime change in Iran through “maximum pressure” campaign introduced by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Writing on his Twitter account on Wednesday, Hamid Baeidinejad said the architect of the “maximum pressure” strategy who was defeated in the November election and is being driven out of the White House should serve as a lesson for them.

“We condemn in its strongest term a report issued on developments regarding Iran by a few UK MPs. This report is not more than advocating regime change through maximum pressure policy against Iran, while the main architect of this failed policy is driven out of the White House,” Baeidinejad tweeted.

The tweet by the ambassador came after the MPs said the British government should designate Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.

According to Independent, the House of Commons foreign affairs committee argued in the report that the influential branch of the Iranian military should face sanctions.

Referring to the IRGC, committee chairman Tom Tugendhat claimed, “The group’s destructive philosophy and violence within Iran and across the region make a compelling case for it to be singled out for sanction.”

The committee’s report also said the UK government should work with the U.S. to encourage Iran to play a “positive, constructive and predictable role” as a regional power.

They said the UK’s strategy should send a clear message that “Iran’s destabilizing activities are unacceptable because they adversely impact the region and its people, but that, when the time comes, the door is open for diplomacy.”

2- Iran Blasts UK Parliamentary Committee for Hostile Report

Tasnim News

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Embassy in London condemned a report that a committee of the UK Parliament has published about relationship with Tehran.
In a post on his Twitter account on Wednesday, Iranian Ambassador to the UK Hamid Baeidinejad denounced the report published by the UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee about Iran.

“We condemn in its strongest term a report issued on developments regarding Iran by a few UK MPs. This report is not more than advocating regime change through maximum pressure policy against Iran, while the main architect of this failed policy is driven out of the White House,” the Iranian ambassador said, referring to the termination of US President Donald Trump’s tenure.

In two other posts in the Persian language, Baeidinejad said the report published by the committee is not a measure approved or a conclusion endorsed by the UK Parliament.

The report is not going to turn into a parliamentary measure either, he added.

“This report has been provided within a very limited group with an absolutely hostile approach and on the basis of analyses and recommendations from the Zionists and Munafeqin (Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization terrorists) to make the last impacts on the future developments,” the envoy said.

The ambassador also slammed Chair of the UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat, who has coordinated the preparation of the report, for working as the mouthpiece of the MKO and the hostile groups seeking to topple the Islamic Republic.

“This report has no legitimacy and value,” the envoy added, noting that the Iranian Embassy has sent an official note of protest to the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and has strongly condemned the preparation of such report by a number of hardline British MPs.

The UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee report entitled ‘No prosperity without justice: the UK’s relationship with Iran’ has called on the UK government to foster a long-term, international response to addresses what it called Iran’s wider destabilizing activities.

3- Walk in EU corridors to find terrorists

Mehr News

TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (MNA) – The head of the Iranian Judiciary’s High Council for Human Rights has strongly condemned the resolution adopted by the European Union against Iran.
“Those who have hampered the access of innocent children to medicine are not competent to even talk about rights of animals, let alone humans,” Ali Bagheri-Kani said in a live interview with a radio station on Friday.

The remarks come as the European Union adopted a so-called human rights resolution on Thursday following the execution of Ruhollah Zam.

European countries are now complicit in murdering tens of Iranian children who failed to access medicine due to the West’s sanctions, he said.

The Europeans have gone so far as to give Swedish citizenship to a criminal who, in addition to spying, played an effective role in assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists, the official added.

Referring to the European Parliament’s request to Iran to receive a special rapporteur, he said “It is not necessary to travel to Iran to observe human rights violations. It is enough to walk in the corridors of the European Parliament to see terrorists whose hands are stained with the blood of 17,000 innocent Iranian nationals.”

“Manufacturers and sellers of chemical weapons to dictator Saddam Hussein, who killed thousands of young Iranians, are still beside you, committing crimes against the Iranian people from Europe. Please look around to see the real violators of the rights of the Iranian people,” he added.

4- EU’s anti-Iran resolution against intl. laws: Iranian parliament

IRNA

Tehran, Dec 20, IRNA – The Iranian Parliament has issued a statement to condemn a recent anti-Iran human rights resolution by the European Union, criticizing the European Parliament’s support for US economic terrorism against the Iranians.

The Human Rights Committee of the Majlis (the Iranian parliament), chaired by Zohreh Elahyan, addressed the Human Rights Committee of the European Parliament, saying that the anti-Iran resolution made the Iranian lawmakers completely surprised and dissatisfied.
As the European Parliament is well aware, every country has the legitimate right to formulate and implement criminal laws; so, Iran’s judiciary branch holds fair trials based on respecting the rights of the suspects, the statement read.

According to the statement, it is very odd that the European body ignored the principle of relationships between parliaments and issued an anti-human rights resolution against Iran based on political motivations, which is contrary to international law in the eyes of independent countries.
Condemning the selective approach to human rights by the European parliament, the Iranian legislators warned that the issuance of the resolution shows Europeans support US-imposed unilateral sanctions on the great nation of Iran, which is considered a disgraceful act.

The Iranian lawmakers also urged Europe to stop providing the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group with a safe haven in the heart of the green continent
The statement further recommended the members of the European Parliament to examine the systematic violation of the rights of the Muslim and other minorities in their own countries.

The Iranian parliament repeated its full support for the legal proceedings carried out by the judiciary branch in the Islamic country, stressing that Iran reserves the right to retaliate such an interfering action.
