Iranian Embassy Attacked In Paris: Tehran Critical Of French Police

Iran has accused French police of failing to respond quickly to what it called an attack against its embassy in the French capital by Kurdish activists.

“Unfortunately, the French police forces were not present when assailants affiliated to a terrorist group attacked the embassy. The issues of attack and the police force’s slow reaction are under investigation,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi complained on Saturday.

Qassemi said that the host country is responsible for security of the diplomatic missions and called for necessary actions to protect Iran’s embassy in Paris.

He noted that after numerous attempts by the Iranian side to follow up the issue, a number of assailants were arrested by the police.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman also urged French authorities to prosecute and punish the perpetrators and declare the proceedings.

According to Press TV, Iran’s embassy in Paris came under attack by Iraq-based anti-Iran terrorists after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps fired missiles at terrorist commanders in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.

The semiofficial Fars news agency reported that about 15 Kurdish activists burned the Iranian flag in front of the embassy during the incident and broke some windows with stones.

Reuters reported that police in Paris confirmed an incident at the embassy, but declined to comment on the speed of their response.
