Iran summons Swiss ambassador over mission’s ‘unusual’ conduct

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has summoned the Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Nadine Olivieri Lozano over her country’s interference in the internal affairs of the Islamic Republic.

The Ministry said in a statement issued on Sunday that Ambassador Lozano had been summoned on the grounds that Switzerland had made “unconventional and unprofessional” use of its embassy in Tehran in republishing a picture with a fake flag.

In a Twitter post on Friday, the Swiss Embassy condemned the recent execution of three men in Iran who had been convicted of launching a deadly terrorist attack against security forces in Isfahan during the foreign-backed riots of 2022. The mission had also called on the Islamic Republic to stop the executions.

It also published a photo of a gathering of anti-Islamic Revolution groups with a fake flag of Iran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry conveyed to the Swiss diplomat the Islamic Republic’s protest over the unconventional conduct that was not in accordance with the cordial relations between Iran and Switzerland. The ambassador said she will convey Iran’s protest to Switzerland.
