Iran strongly condemns Nimr execution

2 January 2016 11:18



Iran strongly condemns Saudi Arabia’s execution of prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, denouncing it as deeply irresponsible. 

“The execution of a personality such as Sheikh Nimr who had no means other than speech to pursue his political and religious objectives only shows the depth of imprudence and irresponsibility,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari said Saturday.

“The Saudi government supports terrorists and Takfiri extremists, while talking to its critics at home with the language of execution and suppression,” he said.
