Pursuant to Canadian government’s decision to freeze Iran’s assets on its soil, an Iranian lawmaker has affirmed Tehran’s right to take reciprocal action against Ottawa.
Meanwhile, he added, Iran will examine different ways through which it can counteract Canada's illegal move.
Iran should make decisions to certainly stop continuation of the behaviors of this British-affiliated government which are against the international law, the Iranian legislator pointed out.
On November 5, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast lashed out at the Ottawa government for freezing the Iranian government's assets in Canada, saying the move is the flagrant violation of international law.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran holds the Canadian government accountable for this violation of international law,” Mehmanparast said.
