Hungary will not recall its ambassador to Iran because that would significantly impact the operations of the Hungarian Embassy in Tehran, which has a small staff, Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi said in Brussels on Thursday.Following a meeting of EU foreign ministers, Martonyi said that participants had resolutely condemned the recent attack against the British Embassy in Tehran, after which several countries recalled their ambassadors for consultation.
That measure does not affect embassies with a large staff so seriously in terms of general operations, Martonyi added. The foreign minister said that Hungary would closely monitor developments in Iran.Source: MTI
