Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned Saudi Arabia's chargé d'affaires in Tehran to protest against a rocket attack near the Iranian Embassy in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.
Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Saudi diplomat, currently Riyadh's most senior diplomat in Tehran on May 25 night and asked him to remind the Saudi Arabia authorities to perform their duties regarding the protection of the diplomats and diplomatic areas, Iran's IRNA news agency reported
Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned the attack on the Iranian Embassy, saying that Tehran deems attacks and threats on security of diplomatic places and diplomats as a 'flagrant violation of international conventions.'
Two rockets were dropped earlier in the day in the vicinity of the embassy compound in southwest Sanaa, which shattered the windows of the building.
Iran recognizes Saudi Arabia as the 'aggressor state' in Yemen and Riyadh will be held directly responsible for any incident that 'may hamper Iranian Embassy's diplomatic efforts' in the country.
Saudi Arabia accuses Tehran of having helped the Yemeni Houthi group topple the country's former government and taking control over the country. Iran denies the involvement.
