Iran summons UK ambassador

Iran summons UK ambassador

Tehran (ISNA) – British ambassador to Tehran Rob Macaire was summoned to the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Saturday to receive an official protest of Iran against problems caused for Iranian voters in his country, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh announced.

“Following the disruption of the 13th presidential election in some cities of the UK, including London and Birmingham, which was accompanied by insults to voters and executive agents and the beating of one voter by anti-revolutionary and anti-democratic elements, the British ambassador to Tehran was summoned to the Foreign Ministry by Assistant to Iran’s Foreign Minister for European Affairs and informed of the Islamic Republic of Iran's strong protest against these riotous and terrorist movements,” Khatibzadeh said.

“The British ambassador was told that the UK government and police had failed in their duty to secure polling stations and voters. Deputy Foreign Ministry for West Europe affairs reminded the fact that democracy will be materialized in ballot boxes not in rioters' moves,” he added.

“British ambassador also received Iran's protest over the mischievous actions of the Persian-language media based in the UK, including BBC Persian and Iran International TV which were trying to reinforce sanctioning election, to provoke people to start street protests and to disturb election process through media campaign. These anti-democracy measures will remain in Iranians' memories,” the spokesman stated.

The British ambassador said that he will convey Iran protest to London.
