Iran's envoy urges protection of embassy in The Hague

London, Jan 10, IRNA – Iran's ambassador to The Hague in contact with Dutch officials emphasized the responsibility of the country's government for protection of the embassy's buildings and staff.

The contacts were made after some members of the terrorist group, known as Al-Ahwaziyeh, raided Iran's embassy in The Hague.

Criticizing the Netherland for 'harboring terrorist groups', Amabassador Alireza Jahangiri reminded the responsibility of the Dutch government in ensuring security of the embassy and safety of the staff.

The Dutch authorities expressed regret over the incident and assured the envoy that the embassy and its staff would be protected.

The video of the raid released on social media on Wednesday evening depicts the assailants holding Al-Ahwaziyeh flag and throwing objects at the embassy building.

No damage or injury was reported.

The terrorist group claimed the responsibility for a bloody attack on an Iran's military parade in September. Thirty people, including children, were killed and scores more were injured in the attack.
