Iran summons UAE envoy over 'idiotic' remarks
[PRESSTV] Iran has summoned UAE's charge d'affaires over "idiotic" remarks made by a senior Emirati official about a terrorist attack that left 25 people dead Saturday, Foreign Ministry front man Bahram Qassemi said on Sunday.

"Following idiotic remarks by an Emirati political adviser on the terrorist attack in Ahvaz, the United Arab Emirates' charge d'affaires was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the head of the relevant political office and the Islamic Theocratic Republic of Iran's strong protest at the irresponsible and insulting remarks was conveyed to him," Qassemi said.

"At the meeting, the Emirati charge d'affaires was warned that the blatant support for terrorist acts by an individual affiliated to the official Emirati agencies will bear responsibility for the UAE government, and indifference to it will not be acceptable," he added.

The summon came after Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, a political adviser to Emirati Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, said the attack in Ahvaz was justified and that "attacking a military target is not a terrorist act".

"Moving the battle deeper inside Iran is a declared option and will increase during the next phase," he added.

Iranian authorities also summoned ambassadors of the Netherlands and Denmark as well as chargé d'affaires of the British Embassy in Tehran after the shooting spree during a military parade.
