Holland recalls ambassador from Iran

30th November 2011, Comments 0 comments

Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal has ordered the Dutch ambassador in Iran to return to the Netherlands for talks.

The serious diplomatic gesture was prompted by Tuesday’s storming of the British embassy in Tehran.

The Dutch foreign ministry says the measure should be seen as a political signal and a token of solidarity with Great Britain. The security of Dutch embassy staff in Tehran is said not to be in jeopardy.
