Dutch lawmaker’s act terrible, unwise: MP

Tehran, Dec 24, IRNA – Iranian senior Member of Parliament slammed Dutch lawmaker’s recent illogical act to have thrown away the Iranian Embassy's Christmas present.

As a humane act Iranian envoy to the Netherlands had presented the gift and never expected such an inhumane reaction, Head of Iran's Parliament (Majlis) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Sunday while expressing congratulation over the upcoming Christmas Day.

Iranian mission in The Hague sends Christmas presents to the Dutch officials and political figures every year. The presents usually consist of a congratulation card with an Iranian souvenir, said an embassy statement.

This year, the number of recipients of the message increased and the congratulatory message was sent to the parliamentary figures as well.

But, leader of the 50PLUS political party of the Netherlands Henk Krol 'with an incomplete and negative outlook at the Islamic Republic of Iran' and ignorant of the fact that the congratulatory message was sent to officials and personalities regardless of their gender, claimed that Iran has only sent them to men and threw the package out, read the statement.

The footage of Krol's move was broadcast by a local media Pow news show.
