UK rebukes Iran for calling Britons stupid
London: Britain`s Foreign Office says
its ambassador to Iran has rebuked the country`s vice
president for calling British people idiots.
In a speech Monday, Mohammad Reza Rahimi said
Britons were "a bunch of idiots ruled by mafia," and
criticised Prime Minister David Cameron`s inexperience.
Though British officials usually let such remarks
pass, Ambassador Simon Gass wrote a blog posting in Farsi on a
government Website sharply criticizing Rahimi.
He said the Iranian official had shown a lack of
respect with his "illogical and worthless remark."
The Foreign Office says it decided Rahimi`s
comments merited a response.
Britain is one of six nations negotiating with
Tehran over its disputed nuclear programme. Iran denies it is
developing nuclear weapons.
