The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned the German ambassador to Tehran to the ministry’s headquarters to protest against Berlin’s statements, which it considered interference in Iran’s “internal affairs”.
According to a statement posted on the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s website, the German ambassador to Tehran, Hans-Udo Moselle, was summoned to the ministry’s headquarters in response to statements made by the German authorities regarding internal developments in Iran, and the continuation of “German positions supporting confusion and instability” in the country.
The statement added that Tehran’s protest was conveyed to Ambassador Mosel, in response to Germany’s continued “unacceptable interference” in Iran’s internal affairs.
The statement indicated that Ambassador Mosel was told that it was deeply disturbing that the German authorities followed a “double standard” in considering “disruptive acts” as beneficial to others and harmful to themselves.
