- The U.N. General Assembly expressed "serious concern" on Tuesday about a long list of human rights abuses attributed to Iran and urged Tehran to ensure full respect for those rights.
- A resolution was adopted by a vote of 72-50 with 55 abstentions in the 192-nation assembly after it narrowly defeated a motion by Iran to take no action on the measure.
P.S: Canadian governments also issued an official statement:
- “Canada played a lead role in bringing forward this resolution and in ensuring its adoption by the General Assembly, which sends an important signal to Iran’s oppressed that they are not alone. In light of the gravity of the situation, Canada will continue to work for the respect of human rights and rule of law in Iran, as well as elsewhere in the world.
