Foreign Ministry condemns Saudi air strike on Iran Embassy in Yemen

Tehran, Jan 7, IRNA - Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaber-Ansari on Thursday strongly condemned the Saudi regime's air attack on Iran's Embassy in Sana'a, Yemen, which injured a number of embassy guards and damaged its building.

'The intentional act of the Saudi government was a violation of all international conventions and regulations about protecting the security and safety of diplomatic missions in all situations,' said the spokesman.

He added, 'The Saudi government is responsible for the measure and also for compensating losses inflicted on both the building and the injured embassy guards.'

'It goes without saying that the Islamic Republic of Iran reserves the rights to pursue the issue through legal channels,' stressed the spokesman.

Saudi fighter planes on Wednesday's night targeted Iranian Embassy in Sana's by rocket. A part of the embassy's wall was damaned by rockets' shrapnels.
