Spokesman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Majlis in interview with Tasnim news agency pointed to a recent UK demand of Iran to pay compensation said "The history of our country is full of betrayals and crimes by the UK against the Iranian nation, especially after the Islamic revolution when the UK proved to be a conspicuous enemy of the Iranian nation, adopting interventional and hostile positions against Iran every once in a while.”
Maintaining that the UK’s inimical approach to Iran was clearly revealed by the country’s interventional behavior during the 2009 uprise he said "The British Embassy would offer service to the seditionist around the clock in the days of the 2009 sedition. The seditionist used to frequent the embassy whereas before the sedition it would not provide any service for people.”
"The UK has asked Iran for compensation when the Iranian embassy in London was also attacked and there were some damages. One even lost his life, but the UK paid nothing. If Iran is to pay any compensation then the UK will have to do the same,” said Naqavi, providing on UK demand of Iran to make up for the damage to its embassy in Tehran where the embassy premises were attacked 3 years ago.
