Russian Foreign Ministry: protests in Iran may be fueled by foreign forces
Head of the Foreign Ministry's Second Asian Department Zamir Kabulov has suggested that the spreading protests in Iran may be fueled by foreign forces.
“The situation there is already difficult and tense, and, of course, the significant increase in gasoline prices has added fuel to the flame," Sputnik cited the diplomat as saying.
He added that they have not received any information that Russian citizens have suffered any injury in the unrest.
Kabulov stressed that the Russian Embassy in Iran follows the situation closely.
