Tehran, IRNA – Nominee for Iran’s Foreign Ministry Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday called for compensation for the mistake made by Russia and Britain Ambassadors in publishing a controversial picture.

Undiplomatic measure by two foreign ambassadors in Iran has damaged public opinion of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Amir Abdollahian said about a picture published by the Twitter account of Russian Embassy in Iran.

The picture was published yesterday, showing the new British Ambassador to Tehran Simon Shercliff sitting with Russia’s Ambassador Levan Dzhagaryan on the upstairs in the porch of Russian Embassy building.

The picture, said President Ebrahim Raisi’s nominee for Foreign Ministry, represents undiplomatic manners and hurts Iranian people’s national pride.

He called for immediate correction of and compensation for the mistake.

The location and setting in the picture reminded the 1943 Tehran conference where the then British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, then US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and then Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin sit at the same place for photo opportunity.

The conference is widely notorious among Iranians and is considered as an aggression and humiliation of Iranian identity and sovereignty. The photo was broadly criticized by all walks of life in Iranian media and social networks.

Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also slammed Russian and British Ambassadors for publishing the picture.
