Tehran summons French envoy to protest France”s anti-Iran stance

TEHRAN, Oct 7 (KUNA) – France’s Charge D’Affaires Jean Grebling was summoned to the Iranian Foreign Ministry last week to hear Iranian protest at anti-Iran stance of the French government in the past one month.
Foreign Ministry Director General for western Europe Mostafa Doulatyar said on Sunday that statements of French officials had been cited as examples of Paris’s anti-Iran stance with the Charge D’Affaires in absence of the French ambassador to Iran, according to IRNA.
“The French government has ignored the breakthrough Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have made to resolve the outstanding issues based on a timetable and is calling for the EU member states to adopt sanctions on Iran separate from the United Nations Security Council.
“The allegation made by French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner that Iran is making efforts to produce nuclear arms has sabotaged the atmosphere of understanding and cooperation between Iran and EU and account for misleading public opinion,” Doulatyar said. Doulatyar said that the French government has adopted double standard in the international campaign against terrorism, citing free activities of the terrorist Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO) in France.
