Iran denies violence at French embassy

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has dismissed claims by French officials that Iranian security forces used violence on diplomatic personnel of French embassy in Tehran.

Mehmanparast told Press TV on Tuesday that the incident reportedly had occurred during a cultural event at the French embassy in Tehran, adding that Iranian Diplomatic Police had earlier cautioned over the presence of some of the people attending the event.

This caused the French embassy staff to express their concern and complaint.

Mehmanparast noted that the issue has been resolved.

Earlier on November 14, the French foreign ministry had summoned the Iranian ambassador in Paris over the incident at the entry to the ambassadorial residence in Tehran.

France claimed that Iranian security service staff hindered embassy access for guests of the French ambassador.
