Zarif Condemns Slovenian Prime Minister Participation in MEK Conference
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemns the Slovenian Prime Minister's participation in an MEK conference.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif asked the EU to clarify its position on some European politicians' and officials' support of the MEK (People's Mujahedin of Iran) terrorist organization.
In a phone call with EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell, Zarif relayed Tehran's concern from the Slovenian PM's anti-Iran statements during the virtual conference hosted by the Paris-based MEK.
Borrell, in turn, said he "regrets the presence of the Slovenian PM in this meeting," stressing that the PM's statements and the things said during the conference do not, in any way, "reflect the EU's position toward the Islamic Republic of Iran," and that they are not in any way in line with the status and power of the EU.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry had summoned the Slovenian Ambassador to Tehran, Christina Radi, "conveying Tehran's strong protests against the Slovenian PM participation's in a meeting held by 'MEK' terrorists."
