ImageUNITED NATIONS (AP) — A United Nations committee has approved a resolution urging Iran to stop harassing political opponents in the wake of disputed presidential elections.

Citing arbitrary arrests, detentions and the disappearance of Iranians exercising their right to freedom following the June 12 presidential election, the General Assembly's human rights committee approved the resolution Friday by a vote of 74-48 with 59 abstentions.

Iran's U.N. Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee called the resolution "politically motivated" and dismissed claims about the election as "entirely misleading and incorrect."

The resolution must now be approved at a plenary session of the 192-member world body where its adoption is virtually certain.
