TEHRAN - Iran's Foreign Ministry on Tuesday summoned the Canadian Charge d'Affaires in Tehran James Carrick to voice Iran's strongly worded protest over the country's support for the Zionists' crimes and atrocities in Gaza.
According to the Information and Press Bureau of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, following the merciless and inhuman crimes of the Zionist regime in Gaza, the issue was raised in the special committee of the United Nations Human Rights Council in which Canada cast a negative vote on the resolution condemning the crimes and atrocities of the Zionist forces in Gaza.
Canada's stance indicated that the country has ignored the inhuman crimes and carnage of innocent children and women in Gaza denying the population the basic human needs such as access to water, food, medicines and sanitation which helped the Zionists to freely continue their crimes without hesitation, said the Foreign Ministry.
At the meeting, the Canadian charge d'affaires was briefed of the negative impacts of a long-term blockade which deprived the innocent people of Gaza as well as Ottawa's double standards and selective approach in dealing with human rights.
The Canadian charge d'affaires, for his part, said that he will inform his country's officials of Iran's protest and views.
