According to Ashura News, quoted by the IRNA news agency, Hojjatoleslam Mohseni-Ejei made the remarks in a meeting held in Tehran attended senior Iranian officials including Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani and Secretary of High Council for Human Rights Kazem Gharibabadi.
Those who have committed the most brutal crimes, taken anti-human measures, displaced the oppressed people worldwide, and annihilated countries' infrastructures claim now that they are after human rights, Mohseni-Ejei noted.
In his remarks, the Judiciary chief stressed the need to not take a passive approach towards the issue of the human rights.
He further appreciated measures taken by different bodies in the country to defend the Islamic Republic of Iran against human rights-related allegations.
In late November 2021, Gharibabadi said that certain countries use the issue of human rights as a tool against others in order to achieve their political goals.
As Mohseni-Ejei announced, the United States as the main supporter of terrorism accuses Iran of supporting terrorists.
Also, Canada that has killed indigenous people and children often sponsors human rights resolutions against Iran, the official noted, adding that such claims shock the world.
In a related development, spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh advised Canadian officials to halt systemic policy on genocide against indigenous people and be responsible for being an aider and abettor of Zionists' anti-human crimes against Palestinians.
Khatibzadeh termed declaration of an anti-Iran draft resolution by Canada with the support of certain Western countries as a repetition of baseless claim based on incorrect information and dishonest generalization.
Elsewhere in the meeting, Gharibabadi said that United States and the West have turned the issue of human rights as an anti-Iran project and make use of all their capacities to proceed their project.
