The Danish ambassador to Iran, Jesper Vahr, was summoned to the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday following an alleged burning of a Quran in Copenhagen.
This was reported by the state-owned Iranian news agency, IRNA.
The ambassador was presented with Iran’s official protest regarding the burning incident. Iran believes that European governments have a passive stance towards what they call “provocative actions.”
The Director-General of the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Western Europe Department emphasized to the ambassador that “burning holy books will only lead to violence and promotion of terrorism,” as reported by IRNA.
According to IRNA, the Danish ambassador expressed regret over the incident and pointed out that Denmark’s foreign minister had condemned the desecration of the Quran.
