Germany Confirms Ambassador Summoned in Iran

 – Iran summoned Germany’s ambassador to Tehran, a spokesperson for the German Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday, amid a diplomatic rift between Berlin and Tehran over the German government’s condemnation of a crackdown on protests in Iran.

On Thursday, the U.N. Rights Council voted to appoint an independent investigation into Iran’s deadly repression of protests, following a push led by Germany and Iceland.
