Iran- Q&A (1st December 2022)


Can you confirm that the Ambassador of France to Tehran was summoned yesterday [by the Iranian authorities]? If so, what reasons were given, and do you have any comment on this summons?

The Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs deplores the Iranian authorities’ summons of France’s ambassador to Tehran on November 30 in response to the National Assembly’s adoption of a resolution, two days earlier, expressing the National Assembly’s support for freedom in Iran.

Once again, France condemns the current crackdown and the multiple attacks on basic freedoms in Iran in the strongest possible terms. We repeat that the protestors’ desire for greater freedom and the respect of their rights are legitimate and must be heard.
