Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian foreign ministry spokesman has condemned the US move to conduct searches at Russian diplomatic buildings.

In a statement, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi denounced the US government’s seizure and searches of Russian diplomatic buildings on the American soil as “arbitrary”, saying such moves run counter to international norms and regulations.

“The US government’s seizure of, or threat to use force against the diplomatic buildings of foreign countries in America is condemned, and sets a dangerous precedent,” he said.

“It shows that from now on, no country’s diplomatic missions on US soil will have enough guarantees from the US government that they enjoy immunity,” Qassemi went on to say.
