UNITED NATIONS, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- UN Security Council on Tuesday condemned "in the strongest terms" the attacks against the British embassy in Tehran, capital of Iran, calling on the Iranian authorities to protect diplomatic and consular property and personnel, and to respect fully their international obligations.

"The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the attacks against United Kingdom's embassy in Tehran, Iran, which resulted in intrusions into diplomatic and consulate premises causing serious damage," said a press statement read out by Portuguese UN Ambassador Jose Filipe Moraes Cabral, who is the Security Council president of the month of November.

"The members of the Security Council recalled the fundamental principle of the inviolability of diplomatic and consular premises, and the obligations on host governments, including under the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to take all appropriate steps to protect diplomatic and consular premises against any intrusion or damage, and to prevent any disturbance of the peace of these missions or impairment of their dignity," Cabral said.

He said that the Security Council called on the Iranian authorities to protect diplomatic and consular property and personnel, and to respect fully their international obligations in this regard.
