The Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly issued a resolution condemning violations of human rights in Iran, calling on the Iranian regime to end persecution and discrimination against dissidents and minorities.

The resolution calls on Iran to release those imprisoned for defending their human rights and freedoms, especially those arrested during the peaceful protests in November 2019 and January 2020, and to abolish the harsh sentences imposed on protesters, including the death penalty and long prison terms.

On Wednesday, Canada and 30 other countries, including the United States, Britain, Germany and France had proposed the resolution which was approved by 79 votes to 32 against and 64 abstentions.
