Iranian MP says UN special rapporteur will not be allowed inside Iran

Zohreh Elahian, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Majlis [Iranian parliament] said that the Special UN Rapporteur on Iran will not be allowed inside Iran despite ‘our respect for him’.

According to reports, Elahian who is also the head of the Human Rights Committee in the Majlis stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not be fooled by their [UN] games on human rights and said, “The UN Special Rapporteur will not be accepted by us because we clearly recognize the hidden and political aims behind the human rights resolutions against Iran and Iran will only accept balanced relations and will not succumb to political pressure”.
