Iranians gather outside French embassy to condemn Macron
A group of Iranian protesters, including university students, gathered outside the French embassy in Tehran to denounce the recent insults to the Muslims’ Prophet.
According to Press TV, they described the French president’s remarks “stupid” and “evil” and an instance of “modern ignorance” and called for the boycotts of the French products.
Iran also summoned France’s chargé d’affaires to protest Emmanuel Macron’s “anti-Islam stances.”
In the absence of the French ambassador to Tehran, Florent Aydalot was summoned on Monday to Iran’s Foreign Ministry, where he met with the ministry’s deputy director general for European affairs.
During the session, the Iranian official denounced the French officials’ “unacceptable measures,” which have hurt the feelings of millions of Muslims in Europe and the entire world, saying, “Any insult and disrespect to Islam’s Prophet (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny) and pure Islamic values by any person —regardless of their position — are strongly condemned and rejected.”
