Senior MP: US Sets Record in Violating Human Rights

"There is no country in the world with more than 220 cases of human rights violation registered for it," Elahian said, addressing her colleagues in an open session of the parliament on Sunday.

"This is while the US assumes itself as the pivot and axis of the world human rights and issues human rights reports on the other countries," she added, saying that such a country cannot judge or call for action on human rights conditions in the other world countries.

Iran has repeatedly warned that the western countries, specially the US, are using human rights issues as a tool and pretext for pressurizing independent states to conceal their own crimes and wrong deeds.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in November lambasted continued violation of human rights by certain European countries, and asked them to listen to the demands of their people.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry in November issued a report on the violation of human rights by the US inside and outside its borders, and urged Washington to join the international conventions which prohibit such crimes.

It was stressed in the Foreign Ministry report that the United States, as a self-proclaimed standard bearer of defense for the human rights in the world, has despite the international community and the UN demand, and even despite President Barack Obama's promise, still not shut down the Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib horrendous prisons.

It is stressed in the report that the United States has not yet joined the most important convention related to the economic, social and cultural rights that is among the most important human rights documents.

The Children's Rights Committee of the United Nations, too, has announced that the United States has been one of the greatest producers and distributors of the world child pornography products, while it is now one of the only two countries in the world that have not yet joined the International Children's Rights Convention.
