Tehran, Iran, Dec. 27 – Britain’s ambassador in Tehran was summoned by the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday, state media reported.

Ambassador Geoffrey Adams was summoned by the director of the Foreign Ministry’s Western European Affairs Ibrahim Rahim-Pour to receive an official complaint by the Islamic Republic over recent remarks by British Prime Minister Tony Blair in which he described Iran as a “strategic threat”.

Rahim-Pour told Adams to convey Tehran’s message to London that the British government “learn a lesson” from the mistakes of its predecessors.

Last week, Blair accused Iran of “openly supporting terrorism in Iraq to stop a fledgling democratic process”.

In a speech to business leaders in Dubai during a tour of the Middle East, Blair said Tehran was at the heart of a “monumental struggle” between the forces of moderation and extremism around the world.

Adams was the Principal Private Secretary to British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw from 2003 to 2005.
