Dutch MP Joel Voordewinde has called on the Dutch foreign ministry to rally support for stopping Iran from gaining membership to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. Dutch media reported that Joel Voordewinde, representative of Christian Union Party in the Dutch parliament, has announced that he will call on Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen to respond to this request in the parliament’s Thursday session.
Voordewinde maintained that the Netherlands should join Germany in this instance and “rally support” for preventing Iran from entering the Human Rights Council. He said it is “unacceptable” that Iran is at the threshold of gaining membership in the UN Human Rights Council, adding: “Iran is consistently announcing that it will erase Israel from the face of the world map. It denies the Holocaust and it is perhaps at this very moment in the process of developing nuclear weapons.”
On April 13, Fiama Nirstien, chief deputy of Italian parliament’s foreign commission, also announced that “it is Italy’s duty to use all possible avenues to stop Iran from membership in the UN Human Rights Council.”
UN Human Rights Council is “an inter-governmental body within the UN system responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe.”
