A senior Iranian human rights authority has portrayed American officials as warmongers and corrupt while emphasizing that the Islamic Republic should be recognized as a nation opposed to such features.

“Americans are warmongers, corrupt and manipulative,” said Secretary-General of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights Mohammad Javad Larijani in a televised interview Wednesday night with Channel 2 of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), adding, “We should be identified as a country that takes a stand against such attributes.”

“Westerners,” he added, “are hostile to presidents that serve their nation, whether he is [Iran’s former President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad or [standing President Hassan] Rouhani.”

Larijani, who is also a senior conslutant of the Iranian judiciary, further emphasized that Iranian diplomats must speak rationally and press their words through.

Describing the Western-led imposed sanctions against the Islamic Republic as “unprecedented” and “highway robbery,” he stressed that Iranian diplomats should conduct negotiations in a way that the opposing side could not challenge us.

“Our negotiations should be justice-centered and brave, and our diplomacy should be sophisticated and based on different techniques,” he added.

Larijani further emphasized that the Islamic Republic has undermined Western equations in the region and the Syrian resistance is a clear example of that.
