Iran criticizes EU's silence against suppression of protests in US

Tehran, June 20, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi late on Saturday criticized the EU for its "deafening silence against barbaric suppression" of the people in the US.

"While the US regime is denying the right of breath to its own people & brutally suppressing the peaceful protests, the 'deafening silence' of the so-called champions of the human rights in Europe & beyond, demonstrates, once again, their insincerity, hypocrisy & double standards," Mousavi wrote in his Twitter account on Saturday.

George Floyd was a black American citizen who recently died under pressure from the knee of a white police officer.

Following his death, widespread protests against racism engulfed the whole US and some other countries in the world.
