The Iranian regime arrested eight locals who worked in the British Embassy in Tehran, provoking strong words in Whitehall and elsewhere. This just showed up in an email, quoting the London Times:
Foreign ministers of European states, gathered for a European Union conference in Greece, quickly condemned the arrests… France, Italy, Germany and Britain maintain robust diplomatic missions in Tehran.
“Harassment or intimidation of foreign or Iranian staff working in embassies will be met with a strong and collective EU response,” said a statement issued by the foreign ministers.
Just shows you what’s really important, eh? Where was that “strong and collective EU response” when peacefully demonstrating Iranians were being butchered in the streets?
No wonder the Iranians feel abandoned by the West. They are.
