UNITED NATIONS - U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson has
expressed her dismay that Iran blocked the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the
Bahai International Community from attending a meeting in Tehran this week
to discuss combating racism.
Robinson, ``while appreciating the efficient arrangements of the Tehran
meeting ... expressed her dismay at the 'procedural and technical'
difficulties that did not allow the (two groups) to attend the regional
meeting,'' her office said in a statement released on Wednesday at U.N.
