After the diplomatic face-off between Iran and UK after British Ambassador was detained, Iran foreign minister said that 'presence of UK's envoy in an internal rally as blatant interference in its internal affairs & contrary to principles governing diplomatic relations'. Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif questioned on 'diplomatic malpractice?' 'UK is parroting US line & blindly abetting its terrorist adventurism in our region The last time UK was dragged along to infamy by the US was in Iraq war. How did that work out? Take the honorable path for a change: settle court-ordered debt to Iranians', he said. Iran also released footage of UK's Envoy to Iran, Rob Macaire, taking part in an illegal protest in Tehran on Saturday after which he was shortly detained & released at identification.
