Iran Summoned Swiss Ambassador Over “Fake” Flag Photo

TEHRAN, May 22 (NNN-TASNIM) – The Iranian Foreign Ministry, yesterday summoned the Swiss ambassador, to protest the embassy’s posting of a photo of a “fake” Iranian flag.

The summons came, after the Swiss embassy in Tehran published on Friday, a post and a photo showing a “fake” flag of Iran, instead of the official one, on its Twitter page, expressing its condemnation of Iran’s execution of three convicts, who killed security officers in an armed attack last year, the report said.

During the meeting with the ambassador, the Iranian Foreign Ministry described the Swiss embassy’s move as “unconventional and unprofessional,” and an “interfering position” in Iran’s internal affairs, it added.

Iran on Friday executed three men, who killed three security officers and injured several others, in an attack in the central city of Isfahan, on Nov 16, 2022, according to the Mizan news agency, of the Iranian judiciary.

The three men were charged with violations against Islamic codes, and breaches of national security, Mizan said.– NNN-TASNIM
