Iran summons UK charge d'affaires

Source: Press TV

Iran's Foreign Ministry has summoned Britain's charge d'affaires over the “unfounded” remarks of the British foreign secretary about Tehran's interference in Syria.

“The remarks of Britain's Foreign Secretary [William Hague] are completely unfounded and based on a series of lies,” the Iranian Foreign Ministry informed UK charge d'affaires Jane Marriott on Thursday.

“Britain's government is not qualified to make such comments about other countries because of [its] interfering measures and destructive role in the region's developments.”

Iran's Foreign Ministry also condemned the meddlesome comments by British officials about Iran's internal affairs, and criticized London's dual and contradictory approach toward the regional developments.

The British diplomat said that she would convey Iran's protests to the UK government.

Britain's accusations against Iran come at a time when the UK has urged the EU to impose sanctions against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over the recent conflicts in the country.

On May 17, EU imposed sanctions, including asset freezes and travel bans, against 13 Syrian officials.

The Syrian president's brother Maher al-Assad, four of his cousins and others in his inner circle were among the officials targeted by sanctions.

On May 23, the EU imposed sanctions on Assad himself, along with nine other senior Syrian officials.
