Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs summons the British ambassador

The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the British ambassador.

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that it summoned and strongly protested to Simon Shercliff, the British ambassador.

The ministry, on Wednesday, February 10, announced in a statement the reason for this action as the new sanctions imposed by Britain and the accusations made by British officials against the Islamic Republic.

According to Iranian news agencies, the Director-General for Western Europe at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs described Britain’s accusations against the Islamic Republic as baseless and unfounded.

This summons came after Britain accused Iranian-affiliated groups of being behind the deadly attack on US soldiers in Jordan, and imposed sanctions along with the United States on networks that target Iranian opposition to the Islamic Republic.

On February 9, America and Britain sanctioned 840 members of the Revolutionary Guards and three individuals associated with them for plotting the assassination of two Iranian journalists on British soil.
