Tehran (IP) - A meeting to expose the dark side of American human rights was held on Tuesday evening at the former US embassy in Tehran.

Iran PressIran news: During the meeting, Deputy Attorney General Saeed Omrani said the people of the world are thirsty to know the facts, and it is a pity that no real genuine activities have been done in this area.

Deputy Attorney General added that the world's people became more aware of the US' evil intentions after September 11, 2001.

Saeed Omrani said that the US sanctions against Iran had targeted the ordinary people, and even current difficulties such as power cuts result from US sanctions.

"Of course, the important thing is that the US is using human rights as a new weapon," said Omrani.

Mohammad Nargesian, Special Investigator for US Sanctions, also said that the source of the strained relations between Iran and the United States was the hostage-taking of American diplomats and that the Americans imposed primary and secondary sanctions, which are cruel ones against the Iranian people.

Even after the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the United States did not lift the above-mentioned sanctions; they only were suspended.

Mohammad Nargesian said the harsh sanctions against Iran have even included food and medicine, which is a violation of human rights, and that unilateral US sanctions have targeted the lives of the Iranians.
