The UN expert on human rights in Iran has said in a report that US sanctions reimposed on the country in 2018 have hit oil sales and caused the devaluation of its currency.

"The negative impact of the reimposition of economic sanctions" by Washington has been "felt strongly by ordinary Iranians," Javaid Rehman said in his report to the General Assembly circulated Friday.

"The sanctions have hit oil sales, imposed wide-ranging restrictions on traders and businesses and triggered the devaluation of the Iranian currency," he said.

"All these factors have contributed to raising the scale of austerity and pushing inflation higher. Rising levels of unemployment and poverty have also adversely affected the rights to health and education and access to other basic services for millions of Iranians," he stated.

Voicing Personal Values to Create Institutional Change

 

By Soraya Fallah & Cklara Moradian

In the corner of the main dining hall, Channy hunched over a brown paper bag, breathing rapidly into it to prevent an impending asthma attack. I reached over to her and sat by her side. I saw the tears roll down her frail face. She looked exhausted. Our nurses were busy tending to patients who had become very ill with food poisoning. There was an atmosphere of panic and chaos, as other social workers were calling 911 to come to their aid

On September 8, 2018, the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran launched multiple missile attacks on the offices and residential compounds of Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) and Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Koya, deep inside the federal region of Iraqi Kurdistan in blatant breach of international law. These attacks lead to the significant number of death and injury among these parties' members and civilians residing in the compound.
 
 
On the same day, Iranian regime executed three Kurdish political prisoners, Ramin Hossein Panahi, Loqman Moradi and Zanyar Moradi. The executions took place despite multiple calls by international human rights organisations to halt the executions and address serious procedural flaws in the detention and trial of the three individuals.

 Nikki Haley, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations on Iran;

 
"In a blatant violation of Iraqi sovereignty, the Iranian regime recently fired a barrage of missiles from Iran into Iraq. Iran attacked the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran, killing eleven people. This was not an act of Iranian proxies but of the Tehran regime itself."

Mr. Mladenov, thank you very much for your briefing.

I've listened to my colleagues statements this afternoon with great interest. I have always been open about my belief that this Middle East debate has been excessively and unfairly focused on Israel. Today, I will go one step further. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is serious and worthy of this Council's attention. But if there is one country that is the source of conflict and instability in the Middle East - one country that merits a quarterly debate in the Security Council - that country is not Israel. It's Iran.

For almost 40 years, the Iranian regime has existed outside the community of law-abiding nations. It is difficult to name a conflict in the Middle East that does not have Iran's fingerprints on it.
