The EU’s diplomatic chief criticized Iran on Sunday for briefly detaining the British ambassador to Tehran, calling for “de-escalation”.
“Very concerned about the temporary detention of the UK Ambassador @HMATehran in Iran. Full respect of the Vienna convention is a must. The EU calls for de-escalation and space for diplomacy,” Josep Borrell tweeted.
