Iran assures Saudi Arabia of embassy security


TEHRAN – Iran on Tuesday said it would ensure the security of the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Tehran after Riyadh threatened to pull out its diplomats following protests by Iranians outside its mission.”The security of embassies is a basic principle and we will ensure the security of embassies and the lives of diplomats,” foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters at a press conference in reference to Saudi threat. “Our people are sensitive to what is happening the region … but this must not undermine the diplomatic missions.”
