Iran refuses to pay the price

Iran has agreed to pay for 60 pct. of the damages done to Denmark’s embassy in Teheran during the cartoon crisis back in February 2006, i.e. 120.000 dollars. The Iranian regime was behind a so called ”spontaneous” demonstration in front of the embassy. The compensation covers the material damage, while the Iranians have refused to pay for extra security measures and evacuation of the embassy staff right before the attack, February 6th 2006.

Says Denmark’s minister of foreign affairs, Per Stig Moeller:

”This is a very satisfactory solution from our point of point view. Usually it’s very difficult to get any kind of compensation from Iran in this kind of cases, that’s no secret.”
