Anti-Iran UNHRC resolution

Iran has dismissed a move by the UN human rights council to establish a fact-finding mission on recent riots in the country.

Tehran says it will not cooperate with the UN mission, warning that some western countries are misusing the human rights issue for their own political objectives.

When the issue of human rights comes to the fore, we have seen many cases of double standards regarding a number of western countries and their allies. Has the issue of "human rights" turned into a western policy tool that is exploited when needed and ignored when it's more convenient?
