“We summoned the Iraqi ambassador to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the Iraqi authorities used a fake name for the Persian Gulf,” Amir-Abdollahian said.
“Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia Al-Sudani had corrected the wrong way of labelling the Persian Gulf in a recent post he posted on social media,” he added.
“Despite having strategic, fraternal, and deep relations with Iraq, we have openly conveyed our protest with regards to the issue,” the top diplomat went on to say.
“We conveyed to the Iraqi side the sensitivity the great Iranian nation has about the need to use of the accurate and complete designation of the Persian Gulf,” he added.
