The ministry of foreign affairs has called on Dutch citizens to avoid non-essential travel to Iran.

The Hague – The Netherland's foreign ministry urged citizens Tuesday to avoid non-essential travel to Iran, the latest country to issue such advice.

"We advise against all non-essential trips to Iran," the ministry said in a note posted on its website.

"We urge travellers who have to go to Iran, and Dutch people living in Iran, to avoid demonstrations, gatherings and riots," the new guidelines urged.

They also called on Dutch people in Iran "to urgently contact the Dutch embassy in Tehran."

Italy, Britain and Germany have already advised their citizens against non-essential travel to Iran, which has been shaken with unrest following the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
