Iran dismisses Canada interventionist statement

Tehran, Dec 31, IRNA – Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman condemned and dismissed the statement released by Canada on Iran's internal affairs.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran considers Canada's interventionist position as violating international commitments and also devoid of any legal justifications,” Bahram Qasemi said.

Adopting a meddlesome and anti-Iran stance, Canadian Government in a statement said, “Canada is encouraged by the Iranian people who are exercising their basic rights to protest peacefully.”

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman also pointed to the murder of the Iranian young man Babak Saeedi by Canadian cops, and said ignoring Iranian legal demands to enjoy primary consular rights indicates Canada's dual policies towards Iranian citizens.

“Adopting such stances is not compatible with the senior Canadian officials’ remarks as regard establishing negotiations with Iran,” he added.

“The empty rhetoric adopted by the Canadian government and the repetition of the wrong, illogical and inefficient policy of former Ottawa government against Iranian people are dismissed,” Qasemi noted.
