IRAN: Iran’s foreign ministry summoned the British Ambassador in Tehran as a retaliatory response to “interventionist comments” from the British Foreign Ministry, the semi-official news agency Tasnim reported on Wednesday.

The British side, by issuing unilateral statements, shows that it has a role in the belligerent scenarios of terrorists active against the Islamic Republic,” the director general of Western Europe at Iran’s foreign ministry added, after saying that London’s remarks on Iran’s internal affairs were “based on fake and provocative interpretations.”

The Iranian official also said that Tehran will be in the process of considering possible options in response to any unusual or erratic actions from Britain.

Iran’s major protests have erupted following the death of a 22-year-old Kurdish woman, named Mahsa Amini, who was detained by the notorious morality police over “unsuitable attire” and eventually died in police custody.
