NSFPC Holds Two Extraordinary Sessions

Speaking to ICANA, Alia said the NSFPC had called on its members to meet in Tehran to discuss the recent anti-Iran resolution of the United Nations Human Rights Council as well as the ongoing crisis in neighboring Bahrain.

The MP added that the first session of the NSFPC in the New Year will be held Monday before the open session to discuss the events in Egypt as well as the New Year Budget Bill which is currently under study by the Joint Committee of the Majlis.

The National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis in a statement issued on Thursday warned the government in Riyadh not to “play with fire” in the Persian Gulf and advised Saudis to pull their forces out of Bahrain.

The statement released in the wake of the ongoing uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, urged Saudi Arabia “not to pursue the wrong polices of the US in the region and consider its own interests as well as the interests of the Muslim world.” It advised Riyadh to withdraw its troops from Bahrain in a bid to help restore tranquility and security to the region.

Current developments in the region are to change the path of history and would create more complicated problems which will not be to the benefit of the US and its allies who have mobilized themselves, said the statement. Instead, the statement added, these are the nations who will change equations to their benefit in regional developments,.

In another statement issued Thursday, the NSFPC accused the United Nations Human Rights Council of being a tool in the hands of the big powers.

The statement issued in response to a resolution adopted by the UNHRC against Iran said the UNHRC was a political council and not competent to deal with human rights issues in other countries. It said the UN council was a tool in the hands of the arrogant powers and behind the scene deals of its members.

The statement issued by the Iranian legislative body said the UNHRC resolution against Iran came at a time that countries like Saudi Arabia and Bahrain which – in violation of all international standards and human rights principles – are killing their own people, are members of the same council.

It said the resolution issued by the Human Rights Council against Iran has been sponsored by the United States and "lacks legal value."

Instead of adopting such resolutions, the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis urged the UNHRC to take up the massacre of the innocent people in Yemen and Bahrain as a priority issue.

"The UN Human Rights Council had better condemn the United States for its tortures at Guantanamo and its secret detentions houses in Europe and respect and support the real rights of human beings," the Majlis statement concluded.

Under the US pressure, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Thursday voted for the appointment of a special human rights rapporteur for the Islamic Republic. The motion was approved with 22 votes in favor, seven against, including China, Russia and Cuba, and 14 abstentions.
