Iran summons Dutch ambassador, condemns deportation of its diplomats

LONDON – Tehran has summoned the Dutch ambassador and the Islamic Republic has protested against the deportation of two Iranian diplomats in the Netherlands, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying by IRNA on Saturday.

Qasemi called the decision to expel two Iranian embassy staff "unfriendly, unconstructive" and said Iran has the right to take reciprocal measures.
