Iran summons German envoy again over interference in riots
After the German government made comments actively supporting rioters in Iran, the Foreign Ministry summoned the German ambassador to Tehran again.
Iran has summoned Germany's ambassador to Tehran in response to Berlin's open support for foreign-backed riots and incitement of terrorism in Iran.
After the German government "strongly condemned" Iran's execution of a rioter and criticized the Tehran's lawful approach to the riots, the German envoy to Tehran, Hans-Udo Muzel, was summoned to the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Friday.
During Muzel's discussion with Iranian Foreign Ministry officials, Iran expressed its strong opposition to Berlin's illegitimate interference in the internal affairs of Iran.
Iran summons German ambassador again over UNHCR 'intervention'
Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned the German ambassador to Tehran on November 28, to protest Germany's repeated interference in Iranian internal affairs following an anti-Iran resolution that was passed in the UN Human Rights Council, which was proposed by Berlin earlier in November.
The head of the Western Europe Division of the Ministry protested Berlin's ambassador Hans-Udo Muzel the “interventionist and baseless statements” against Iran, while also informing him that Tehran rejects the Council's resolution that is politicizing human rights issues, and using them as an instrumental, further stressing that Tehran won't accept nor cooperate with the UNHCR's resolution.
Earlier that month, the ministry also summoned the German Ambassador over unconstructive and "irresponsible" remarks made by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
The ministry then held Germany responsible for the effects of such remarks on the future of bilateral relations between Tehran and Berlin.
The spokesperson of Iran's Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kanani, also bashed the German chancellor's anti-Iran stances, as well as his recent comments in support of western-instigated demonstrations in Iran, as "meddlesome, inflammatory, and undiplomatic."
