Tehran (IP) - In a telephone conversation with his Italian counterpart, Iran's Foreign Minister noted that if the EU took any unreasonable act based on double standards, then it must await Iran's strong reaction.

Iran PressIran news: Iran's FM and his Italian counterpart Luigi Di Maio had a telephone conversation on Wednesday, discussing the bilateral relations, talks on lifting sanctions, and the recent unrest in Iran fueled by foreign interventions. 

The interventions of a number of the European countries in Iran's recent developments caused the country's reaction such that the ambassadors of Sweden, the UK, and France to Tehran were summoned to receive Iran's protest. 

Amir-Abdollahian told Di Maio: "In recent events, foreign interventionists, organized agents and terrorists derailed the peaceful gatherings of people and brought it towards violence, chaos and the killing of innocent people, the police, and security guards."

He expressed his dissatisfaction with the interventionist positions of some European authorities and warned that if the EU tended to take any unreasonable action and behave hypocritically, it must wait for the due response of the Islamic Republic of Iran. 

The unrest and brawls were instigated under the pretext of Mahsa Amini, 22, who died due to a sudden heart attack in a police center in Tehran on Tuesday, September 13, after being taken there for violation of dress codes along with some other women.
