Following the burning of the Holy Quran by the leader of the SIAN or Stop Islamization of Norway, the director of the North European Affairs of the Iranian Foreign Ministry has summoned the Norwegian chargé d'affaires in Tehran in the absence of the country's ambassador.

In the meeting with the Norwegian envoy, Tehran strongly protested against this hideous act in the European country, and warned about the dangerous consequences of such acts of spreading extremism and violence.
Referring to the disgraceful act that hurt the sentiments of Muslim people across the world, the Iranian official said "one cannot insult the beliefs and sanctities of more than 1.5 billion Muslims in the world under the pretext of freedom of expression."
He also urged the Norwegian government to prevent the recurrence of such seditious acts and to deal with its perpetrators.
The Norwegian official, in turn, emphasised that he will covey the objection of the Islamic Republic of Iran to his government, adding, "The Norwegian government completely rejects this move, and Oslo’s main policy is to support freedom of expression and opinion and to prevent hate speech.”
“The Norwegian government commits itself to protecting the security of Muslims living in the country and to preventing extremist and divisive acts,” he added.
