President Raisi: West’s invasion on human rights evident (IRNA)

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi blasted the West’s double-standards vis-a-vis the human rights issues, and said that such approach has been harmful to other societies across the world.

“Today we are witnessing a widespread Western invasion on human rights and the cultural identity of other societies, and wherever there is resistance to their cultural invasion, they seek to change the tastes of that society in order to impose their own culture,” President Raisi said addressing students and professors of the Tajik National University on Friday evening.
