Iran summons Danish ambassador over attack on Iran embassy in Denmark
Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian called out the Danish police over the lack of security around Iran's Embassy in Copenhagen.
Iran's Arabic-language television network Al Alam reported on Friday that the Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned the Danish ambassador in Tehran over the recent attempted knife attack on the Iranian ambassador in Copenhagen.
On the other hand, the Danish ambassador to Iran apologized today, stressing that "security measures will be strengthened after this incident."
Last Friday, the Danish police arrested a 32-year-old man after he entered the premises of the Iranian embassy in Copenhagen while carrying a knife, according to reports.
Prior to the police's arrival, the man threatened the embassy's staff and damaged their vehicles in the parking lot.
"Unfortunately, despite the previous official warnings, the Danish police arrived at the embassy with delay," said Tehran's ambassador to Denmark, Afsaneh Nadipour.
Following the incident, Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, while on a phone call with Nadipoor, criticized the Danish police over its lax security standards around Tehran's Embassy, and he summoned the Danish Danish ambassador in Tehran for clarifications over the incidents.
Iran-phobia has been on the rise since western media violently dehumanized Iran's reputation after accusing it of an incident it wasn't responsible for: the death of Mahsa Amini.
The manipulation of human rights in Western media has long been used to push for an agenda of regime change, and the demonization of Iran is built on narratives of human rights violations.
On October 2nd, a spokesperson for the Iranian Parliament Nizamuddin Mousavi said that some 45,000 people from foreign organizations, intelligence services, and terrorist groups formed networks across the country, some of whom have been arrested.
On October 3rd, the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Sayyed Ali Khamenei, accused the US and 'Israel' of planning and standing behind the riots. “I say explicitly that these riots and this insecurity were a design by the US and the occupying, fake Zionist regime [Israel] and those who are paid by them, and some traitorous Iranians abroad helped them,” Khamenei told the graduating cadets at a police university in Tehran.
Meanwhile, Iran is pushing ahead to further its diplomatic ties with regional powers as President Ebrahim Raisi stated on Tuesday that Iran is ready to use its diverse and effective capacities to solve regional and global issues.
