Tehran, Iran, Jan. 09 – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei backed on Monday a recent call by hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for a team of Iranian investigators to be sent to Europe to investigate human rights abuses there.

Speaking in the holy city of Qom on Monday, Khamenei said that the Islamic Republic was keen to help resolve rights abuses in European states, the state-run ISNA news agency reported.

Ahmadinejad had suggested for a team to be organised and dispatched from Tehran to Europe and a separate one to be sent from Europe to Iran to carry out investigations on allegations about each other’s rights abuses and to help each other in respecting civil rights.

“It is beneficial for the Europeans to accept these two logical suggestions by the honourable president”, the Supreme Leader said.

Over the past several months, Iran’s state-run press have stepped up claims of rights abuses in European capitals. A favourite among the hard-line dailies is the recent fortnight-long riot by youths in the streets of Paris and the police reaction.

Khamenei also rejected Western versions of democracy and human rights being implemented in Muslim nations. The West allows “immoralities” such as homosexuality and violence that are unacceptable to the Islamic world, he said.
