Iran Condemns EU Sanctions Over Human Rights Abuses

Iran has condemned the European Union for its fresh sanctions against 32 Iranian officials over alleged human rights abuses, accusing the bloc of hypocrisy and servitude to the United States.

“This action is a political one which employs double standards, and it is unacceptable,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying on state broadcasting.

He said the actions were aimed at diverting attention from Western rights violations, adding that “this [EU] act, which follows American policies, is condemned…[and] it shows that the European Union is distancing itself from making policy independently.”
