Bangladesh has condemned the recent attacks on the Saudi Embassy in Tehran and its consulate in Mashhad.

According to a foreign ministry press release issued on Wednesday “Bangladesh condemns the recent attacks on the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Tehran and its Consulate in Mashhad as such acts are in clear violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961 and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, 1963.”

“It is the responsibility of the host government to accord necessary protection to the diplomatic and consular missions within its jurisdiction as these are inviolable under the international law.”

“Bangladesh calls upon the Islamic Republic of Iran to take urgent necessary measures to stop recurrence of such incidents,” the release added.
