TEHRAN – Norway’s ambassador to Tehran was summoned by the Iranian Foreign Ministry in protest at the “unacceptable” remarks by the European country’s parliament president about the Islamic Republic.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry’s director general of Western Europe Department summoned the Norwegian ambassador on Monday.
In the meeting, the Iranian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned and rejected the Norwegian parliament head’s comments in an interview with a hostile media outlet in support of riots and his interference in Iran’s domestic affairs.
The Norwegian envoy said the protest would be conveyed to Oslo.
In a recent interview with an anti-Iran, Saudi-backed network based in London, Norwegian Parliament President Masoud Gharahkhani encouraged those behind the recent riots in Iran to continue their actions, declaring his firm support for them.
