Kuwait recalls ambassador to Iran over attack on Saudi embassy

ANKARA (AVRUPA TIMES) Kuwait recalled its ambassador to Iran on Tuesday, citing the recent attacks against Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Tehran and consulate in Mashhad, the official Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) said.


The agency quoted an unnamed source who said the actions are a “flagrant breach of international conventions” and a violation of Iran’s commitment to the “security and safety of diplomatic missions on its lands.”  


Late Saturday, Iranian protesters attacked the Saudi embassy in Tehran and the Saudi consulate in Mashhad to protest the execution earlier the same day of prominent Shia imam Nimr Baqir al-Nimr by Saudi authorities.


Demonstrators managed to set fire to the embassy building before eventually being dispersed by Iranian security forces.
