Iran called Israel's recent accusation of widespread human rights violations in the Islamic republic baseless and denounced Israel's "horrific human rights record" in a letter to the UN secretary-general obtained Wednesday. Iran's new UN ambassador, Mohammad Khazaee, said his government would not respond to the "baseless allegations and distortions about the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran." Israel's "futile" attempt "to raise allegations against others' human rights situation is nothing but a preposterous, and indeed tired, practice to distract the international community's attention from its shameful human rights record," he said. Khazaee was responding to a June 19 letter from Israel's deputy UN ambassador Daniel Carmon to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urging the international community to speak out against Iran's "systemic, grave, and widespread" violation of human rights.
