The Italian ambassador was informed about Iran’s strong protest to the acts and remarks by some Italian officials which continue to intervene in Iran’s domestic affairs.
The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed that selective and dual policies towards the human rights are unacceptable and rejected by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
It is the other side that has harmed the interests of the Iranian nation and violated their rights by imposition of illegal sanctions, the ambassador was told by Iranian Foreign Ministry officials.
