Tehran calls on Iraqi government to ensure security of Iranian diplomatic places

Tehran (ISNA) – Following the attack of some rioters to the Iranian consulate in Karbala late Sunday night, the Islamic Republic of Iran called on Iraqi government to ensure security of Iran’s diplomatic places there under 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

Following the attack and the set of subsequent actions taken by the Iranian Foreign Ministry since last night, the Iraqi ambassador to Tehran met with a high-ranking official of the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Monday.

During the meeting, the Iranian senior official strongly condemned the attack and called on the relevant Iraqi apparatus to maintain security measures to protect the diplomatic premises of the Islamic Republic of Iran under the 1963 Vienna Convention.

The Iraqi ambassador, for his part, stressed that the Iraqi government is committed to ensuring the security and safety of the diplomatic places.
