Iran 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.
