UK liable for embassy closure aftermath

What happened in Tehran was not comparable to the incident at Iran's embassy in London in 1980, which led to the six-day occupation of the embassy by the Israeli regime's agents and death of two embassy staff, Fars news agency quoted Alaeddin Boroujerdi as saying on Wednesday.

In 1980, a group of six gunmen affiliated to an anti-Iran terrorist group stormed the Iranian embassy building in South Kensington, London, taking 26 people -- mostly embassy staff-- hostage from April 30 to May 5.

The embassy siege resulted in the death of two hostages including one diplomat, and ended with the intervention of Special Air Service (SAS) unit of the British army.

“In that incident…the British police did not defend our embassy. However, the [Iranian] police clashed with students yesterday and did their best to protect the British embassy,” the senior Iranian legislator added.

Boroujerdi further said, “The public opinion of the Iranian nation is undoubtedly delighted that the British regime's ambassador and diplomats are no more [present] in Tehran.”

Boroujerdi also advised European Union member states not to follow Britain's example in this regard.
