The charge d’affairs of Czech Republic embassy in Tehran was summoned to Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Monday.
The Deputy of Iran’s Foreign Ministry Director General for human rights and women criticized the EU double standards on terrorism.
The Iranian official also called on the Czech official who is the current holder of the EU’s rotating presidency, to follow an unchanging and logical approach regarding terrorism and take stance based on correct information instead of issuing unfounded statements.
The Iranian official then asked the EU not to use human rights as an instrument.
The Czech official pledged to inform the EU of Iran’s criticism and comments.
The EU has already removed the name of Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) from its terrorist black list. The move provoked strong condemnation in Iran.
The group carried out a large number of terrorist attacks in Iran and then fled to Iraq after Islamic Revolution in 1979.
The group helped the former Iraqi President Saddam Hossein in his attacks against Iranian territory.
