While the whole world stood up for Mahsa Emini, Iran summoned the ambassadors of Britain and Norway to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the events that developed after Emini’s death.
In a written statement from the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it was noted that British Ambassador Simon Shercliff was summoned to the Ministry due to the anti-Iran activities of the UK-based BBC Persian and Iran International channels, and the necessary reaction was shown.
In the statement of the ministry, it was stated that such publications amounted to “interfering in Iran’s internal affairs” and “violating the national sovereignty of the country”.
It was reported that Norway’s Ambassador to Tehran Sigvald Hauge was also summoned to the Ministry due to the statements of the President of the country’s Parliament regarding the latest developments in Iran.
Describing the statements of the Speaker of the Norwegian Parliament as “statements far from reality”, the Ministry emphasized that such comments mean “interference in the internal affairs of the country”.
The death of Mahsa Emini on September 16, who was hospitalized after being taken into custody by the Irshad patrols known as the “morality police” in Tehran, the capital of Iran, on September 16, caused outrage in the country.
The protests that started after Emini’s funeral in her hometown of Sakkız on September 17, spread to many cities of the country in a short time.
