Swedish envoy summoned to Iran Foreign Ministry over desecration of Islamic sanctities

The chargé d’affaires of the Swedish Embassy in Tehran was summoned to the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in protest at the recent desecration of the Holy Quran in the European country.

The Swedish diplomat was told that the Swedish government’s silence and passive behavior embolden violators of one of the basic and obvious principles of human rights, namely the principle of respect for religious and divine values.

In response, the Swedish chargé d’affaires emphasized the Swedish government’s opposition to any form of Islamophobia, and stated that he would convey the protest to Stockholm as soon as possible.
