Iran regrets the decision by Canada’s House of Commons to freeze the process of restoring diplomatic ties between the two countries, Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohamed Javad Zarif said Thursday.
“Unfortunately, in Canada there are big misconceptions about Iran that are supported by the hardliners in the country despite the change in government,” Zarif was quoted by the Iranian news agency ISNA.
Zarif said it would be in the interests of Canada and the West to ignore anti-Iran propaganda when making such foreign policy decisions.
