Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei lashed out at western states over allegations that they advocate human rights while in reality supporting terrorist groups and acts of terror.
In a meeting with judiciary officials in Tehran, Imam Khamenei made reference to human rights violations committed by the United States in various parts of the world as well as France and Britain’s crimes of the past decades which took place in Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
West’s support over the past years for the ISIL terror group in Syria and the atrocities being committed in Myanmar and elsewhere “is indicative of the repeated lies of the shameless fake human rights advocates,” the Leader said, as quoted by Press TV.
His eminence stressed meanwhile, that when it comes to the issue of human rights, it is actually the Islamic Republic that stands in the position of the true advocate of human rights as opposed to “the criminal Western pretenders.”
On the other hand, Imam Khamenei expressed satisfaction with the Judiciary’s work in restoring the Iranian nations’ rights in the face of bullying powers, but advised the judicial officials to work closely with the government towards resolving the country’s economic problems.
The Leader also dismissed allegations that there is “systemic corruption” within Iranian state institutions, stressing that there are some parts who seek to create the impression among the public
Corruption does exist in a number of governmental and commercial enterprises, “but the existence of systemic corruption is not true,” the Leader said.
“This wrong impression should not be allowed to affect the public opinion,” the Leader pointed out.
