Britain warns Iran of political and economic “isolation”


British Foreign Secretary, Rob Macaire, warned the Iranian regime from sliding into “more” political and economic “isolation, against the backdrop of the arrest of his ambassador to Tehran Rob Macaire hours before releasing him.

This came in statements made by the Minister before the House of Commons British (Parliament), Monday, according to the British (independent) ITV.

In response to a question asked in the council, Rob said: “The arrest is a flagrant violation of international law.”

The foreign minister added: “The regime in Tehran is at a crossroads. He could slip more and more into political and economic isolation.

”But he added,“ But there is an alternative and the regime has a choice: the diplomatic door remains open, it is time for Iran to participate in diplomacy, and chart a peaceful way forward. ”

On Sunday, the UK’s ambassador to Iran, Rob MacAir, denied accusations of taking part in the protests in Tehran, commenting on his detention and his subsequent release by the Iranian authorities.

British media reported that the Iranian authorities arrested the British ambassador to Tehran on Saturday, and then released him, on the grounds of photographing the demonstrations taking place in the Iranian capital.

On the same day, a gathering in Tehran, during a memorial service for the victims of the Ukrainian plane that crashed a few days ago in Iran, turned into a demonstration against the ruling regime in the country.

On Wednesday, a Ukrainian Boeing 737 passenger plane crashed, killing 176 people: 82 Iranians, 57 Canadians, 11 Ukraine, 10 Swedes, 4 Afghans, 3 Germans and 3 Britons.

The incident occurred in conjunction with Tehran targeting American bases in Iraq with a number of missiles.

And Saturday, the Iranian Staff announced, in a statement, that its air defense system shot down the Ukrainian passenger plane, after a “human error” the moment it passed over a “sensitive military zone”.
