Interventionist comments: Iran summons British ambassador
Iran’s foreign ministry has summoned the British ambassador in Tehran in reaction to what it describes as “interventionist comments”.
The director general of Western Europe at Iran’s foreign ministry said London’s remarks on Iran’s internal affairs were “based on fake and provocative interpretations.”
“The British side, by issuing unilateral statements, shows that it has a role in the belligerent scenarios of terrorists active against the Islamic Republic,” he added
The Iranian official added Tehran will consider possible options in response to any unusual actions from Britain.
Britain’s foreign ministry said on Monday it had summoned the Iranian charge d’affaires, Iran’s most senior diplomat in Britain, over the crackdown on protests following the death of Mahsa Amini in custody.
The British envoy in Tehran was summoned on Tuesday.
A 22-year-old Kurdish Iranian woman, Amini was arrested on Sept. 13 by the morality police in Tehran for wearing “unsuitable attire”.
