Iran summons Swiss envoy over US sanctions

Published: 02.11.14, 07:51 / Israel News

TEHRAN - Tehran summoned the Swiss ambassador, who represents Washington’s interests in Iran, on Monday to protest the latest US measures against individuals and companies for violating sanctions against the Islamic republic.


The US Treasury said last week it had blacklisted targets for “supporting Iran’s nuclear program and active support for terrorism,” even as it had eased sanctions as part of an interim deal over Tehran’s nuclear activities.


An official from the Iranian Foreign Ministry, which summoned the Swiss envoy on Monday evening, sharply criticized the US over the measures.


“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s stance on terrorism is well known and the United States, which openly supports terrorist groups in the region, is not in a position to accuse Iran," he said.


“We strongly condemn these allegations,” the official added. (AFP)
