Iran Foreign Ministry Condemns Awarding Nobel Peace Prize to Mohammadi as Biased Political Move

 – Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Friday condemned the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to jailed rights activist Narges Mohammadi as a biased move aimed at politicising the prize.

“The action of the Nobel Peace Committee is political move in line with the interventionist and anti-Iranian policies of some European governments,” ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said.

“The Nobel Peace committee has awarded a prize to a person convicted of repeated law violations and criminal acts, and we condemn this as biased and politically motivated,” he said in a statement carried by state media.
