Tehran, Iran, Apr. 09 – Iran accused France and the United States of human rights abuses on Sunday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi told reporters in Tehran that the Iranian embassy in Paris had sent a memo to French officials protesting “violations of citizens’ rights” and the “expulsion” of Muslim clerics.

Tehran also objected to “violations of women’s rights” in France, particularly the French ban on headscarves being worn in schools.

“We expect France to uphold its international obligations and human rights and act with greater patience and tolerance”, Asefi said.

He also blasted “human rights violations” in the United States. “America with its bleak record on human rights and democracy is not in a place to judge others”, he said.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman listed 10 examples such “failings” by the U.S., among them “control over the media” and institutionalised “racism”.
