A senior Iranian lawmaker said the country will soon launch an English-language news agency to report on the human rights conditions in the West, the local satellite Press TV reported Tuesday.

Mohammad Karim Abedi, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis, or Iranian parliament, said Monday that the new news agency would seek to assert human rights in the United States and Britain, according to the report.

The new agency to be called "The Human Rights News Agency" would report on instances of rights violation in Europe and the U. S., which have gone unnoticed over the years by the world media, Abedi was quoted saying. Enditem
