Iran raps Canada’s ‘meddlesome’ stance on protests

Iran’s foreign ministry condemns Canada for supporting the protests sweeping the Islamic Republic.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran regards the meddlesome stance of the Canadian government as a violation of that country’s legal and international commitments,” says spokesman Bahram Qassemi, according to Press TV.

“Unfortunately, the Canadian government’s rhetoric is a rehash of the wrong, illogical and ineffective rhetoric of Canada’s previous governments against the Iranian people and is inadmissible,” he adds.

Canada on Saturday said it was “encouraged by the Iranian people who are exercising their basic right to protest peacefully.”
