Foreign Minister of Britain: detention of Ambassador in Tehran, a gross violation of international law

Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain Dominic Raab said that the detention of Ambassador Robert Macaire in Tehran on stocks is unfounded. It is a gross violation of international law, stressed the foreign Minister.

Tehran is “at a crossroads”, said Raab: he can continue his path to pariah status and political and economic isolation, and could make a number of steps to de-escalate and engage in diplomatic way, cites the opinion of the Minister RIA Novosti.

the US state Department has also supported London’s position, and urged Iran to publicly apologize for the arrest of the Ambassador.

Earlier it was reported that Macaire was detained for several hours for “inciting” during a funeral ceremony in Tehran. Students gathered to honor the memory of Ukrainian victims of the disaster Boeing. The campaign turned into a rally, which was dispersed by the police.
