Iran's foreign ministry expressed on Sunday to British charge D'affaires Neil Crompton its official protest over comments by British Prime Minister Tony Blair which Tehran said were tantamount an accusation of supporting terrorism.
Following recent comments by Tony Blair, the foreign ministry has summoned the British charge D'affaires and officially protested against these baseless accusations,
Iranian state radio reported.
When asked by the BBC to comment on Washington's description of Iran as forming part of an ‘Axis of evil’, Blair had said, “There are real issues in respect of all those countries.”
Iran, as a member of international conventions on chemical and nuclear weapons, demands that all countries respect these conventions. “We expect from a major nuclear power such as Britain that it conform to such commitments,” a high-ranking foreign ministry official who met with Crompton was quoted as saying.
