Czech charge d'affaires to Tehran Jan Kouril was summoned to Iran's Foreign Ministry on Wednesday to hear the country's protest against European Union (EU) support for Israeli "crimes," the official IRNA news agency reported.
The Czech Republic as the current chairman of EU was supposed to hear Iran's "strong criticism of the EU's indifference towards severe violation of human rights in Gaza by the Zionist regime."
Kouril was briefed about the "meaningful silence of the EU over the Zionist regime's atrocities in Gaza and condemned the EU's double-standard in regards to the handling of the issue of human rights."
For his part, the Czech diplomat said he would inform EU of Iran's views and positions, IRNA said.
Iran never hesitated to pronounce its all-out support for Hamas during the three-week unprecedented Israeli air and ground offensive on Gaza, which left over 1,400 Palestinians killed and some 5,500 others wounded.
