Those who claim to live in a garden and consider the rest of the world residents of the jungle have remained silent and stopped defending the rights of women and children and human rights, the senior official said.
Kanani’s statements made ironic comments about a recent speech delivered by Head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, in which he described Europe as a “garden” and the rest of the world as a “jungle.”
So far, the European Union has not spoken about the attack that took place on October 26 at the Shah Cheraq sanctuary, which killed at least 15 people, including women and children, and, although it was claimed by Daesh, the Iranian government accuses the United States, Israel and its European partners of being behind these events.
The Iranian diplomat described the West as hypocritical for questioning the human rights of women and minorities in Iran and ignoring the unilateral and indiscriminate measures imposed by Washington that mostly affect the population.
He stressed that those countries have adopted an interfering, irresponsible and provocative approach, and their actions have brought about unrest.
The Iranian spokesman further warned about the eventual decision to label the Iranian elite military force as ‘terrorist’ for its alleged role in ‘suppressing’ the ongoing protests in Iran.
