Iran denounces Western interference in its internal affairs


Iran denounces Western interference in its internal affairs

United Nations, Sep 21 (Prensa Latina) The president of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, denounced the interference of the West in the internal affairs of his nation, according to what was reported here today.

He also warned about the worrying human rights situation in European countries and urged the European Union (EU) to condemn police brutality against women in the United States and its member states, instead of expressing concern about human rights in other nations.

The president held a meeting with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, before speaking at the United Nations General Assembly.

According to media reports, Raisi recalled achievements of Iranian women after the Islamic Revolution and invited Macron to visit Tehran to familiarize himself with these facts.

The statements of the Iranian head of state come in response to the media campaign of the United States and other Western countries, following the death of the young Mahsa Amini, after being detained by police forces for improper use of the hijab (veil compulsory in Muslim countries).

Amini, 22, died last Sunday of alleged injuries after being detained by police on September 13 for participating in an education and orientation class on dress codes.

Tehran Police Chief Hosein Rahimi the day before rejected media accusations that the cause of death was the result of a brutal beating while she was at the police station, and assured that she was not even mistreated.

A video published last Friday by the Police shows that the young woman falls to the ground without having any physical contact with the agents, but the Western press intensified the attacks against the Government and the police forces, while using that argument to promote protests in Iran.
