Minority groups criticize Pompeo’s anti-Iran tweet

Tehran, The Assyrian Association of Tehran in a statement released on Sunday slammed the US secretary of state's anti-Iranian tweet.

The Assyrian Association of Tehran dismissed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claims about violation of rights of minorities in Iran, and said that the minority groups in Iran can defend their rights and do not need the US guardianship.

The Assyrian Association of Tehran in their statement referred to racial behavior towards the American colored skin citizens and the US immigration laws and compared the human rights situation in the United States of America to barbarism.

Separating the children from their migrant parents and deploying them in camps in the US reminds the Nazi concentration camps, the statement noted.
