Iran summons Dutch ambassador over embassy attack

Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Dutch ambassador to Tehran to voice the country’s protest over a recent attack by “some antirevolutionary elements” on the Islamic Republic’ Embassy in The Hague.

A senior Iranian Foreign Ministry official met with Jacques Werner and conveyed Tehran’s strong protest, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The Iranian official pointed to the similar attacks in the past and criticized the lack of decisive action by police and judicial authorities of the Netherlands.

He further urged the Dutch government to take serious actions in line with its obligations under the Vienna Convention of 1961 and ensure the security of the Iranian Embassy and its diplomats.

The Dutch ambassador expressed regret for the incident, presented a report on the actions of his country's police regarding the perpetrators of the incident and said he would inform his government of Iran’s protest.

Around 10 protesters gathered at the Iranian Embassy in The Hague on Wednesday and climbed the fence, according to local reports.

Some of the protesters pelted the building with objects. The police arrested four of the demonstrators, the Volkskrant reported.

The Iranian Embassy had also been stormed by protesters on January 5, according to the report.
