She referred to racial discrimination in the US and said massive protests by American people against racial discrimination and the institutionalized violent behavior towards the colored people, is a sign of persistent chronic scars in the US community.

She criticized the behavior of the US police and the implicit support of the country’s judicial system for racial segregation and violence against minority groups, saying the US policy makers and rulers need a profound approach to their country’s domestic conditions.

The foreign ministry spokeswoman went on to say that the US administration has over the past few decades abused human rights and adopted double-standard policies against other countries while ignoring its own domestic conditions.
