TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's parliamentary speaker cancelled on Saturday a visit to Canada to protest Ottawa's decision to cut diplomatic relations, and Tehran's foreign ministry called "unwise" a five-day deadline set by Canada for Iranian diplomats to leave the country.

Canada shut its embassy in Tehran on Friday accusing the Islamic Republic of being the most significant threat to world peace. The surprise action reinforces the Conservative government's close ties with Tehran's arch foe Israel.

To protest the cutting of ties, Iran's parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani decided not to attend a meeting of legislators from different countries scheduled for late October, Fars news agency said.

Tehran's Foreign Ministry meanwhile said that Ottawa's five-day deadline for its diplomats to leave was "unwise." It said Canada cut relations in an "unprofessional, unconventional, and unjustifiable manner while resorting to misusing international law."

The Best Line!

by Faramarz on



The best line about Canada's decision to cut ties with the Regime came from IR's Foreign Ministry where Mehmanparast said that, "the success of the Non-Aligned meeting in Tehran forced Canada to take such drastic action!"

A good one!

I am beginning to think that they even mess around with the translation of his comments! 

Who is the guy behind the curtains that comes up with these great translations and lines, and so quickly!
