Foreign Ministry summons French ambassador

Tehran, July 4, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Wednesday that the ministry has summoned French ambassador to Iran.

The deputy director general for European affairs summoned the French ambassador to hear Iran's protest against activities of the MKO terrorist grouplet in France, he said.

The Iranian FM official underlined that the extremist terrorist groups should not be allowed to seek shelter under pretext of freedom of speech to promote extremism and terrorism, Qasemi said.

In the meeting, Iranian Foreign Ministry also protested against the recent gathering held in Paris in the presence of some US hardliners and extremist officials and against their interfering speeches against the Iranian people.

The French ambassador vowed to convey the Iran's protest note to his government at the earliest.
