EU presidency asks members to summon Iran's envoys

PRAGUE, June 22 (Reuters) - The Czech European Union presidency asked the bloc’s members on Monday to consider summoning the heads of Iran’s missions in Europe to express "deep revulsion" over post-election violence there.

The Czechs said they had summoned the head of the Iranian ministry in Prague to reject Iran’s protest that the EU and its member states were illegitimately interfering in Iran’s affairs.

Teheran officials summoned the Czech charge d’affaires on Sunday along with other 26 EU representatives to complain about EU critical remarks on Iran’s elections. The Czechs hold the rotating EU presidency until the end of June. (Reporting by Jana Mlcochova)
