TEHRAN, March 14 (MENA) - Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Swiss ambassador, whose country represents the US interests in Iran, over the US president’s allegations against the country after a recent attack on a military base used by the coalition forces in Iraq, Tasnim news agency reported Saturday.

Following the baseless remarks by the US president that Iran is held accountable for the attack on the base of coalition forces in Iraq’s Taji, the Swiss ambassador to Tehran was summoned by the Director General for the Americas of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the ministry on Friday evening and was notified of the country’s strong protests against those comments, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.

“(He) was told in the meeting that instead of accusing others, the US president must accept the truth about the wrong US policies on the illegal presence in Iraq and the killing of the Iraqi commanders and soldiers, and that the US officials, Mr. Trump in particular, could not shirk responsibility by making groundless and dangerous remarks,” the spokesperson added.
