Iran has summoned Spain's ambassador to express its protest over Madrid's reaction to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent remarks against Israel, semiofficial Iranian news agencies reported Thursday. Iran's Foreign Ministry director for Western Europe, Ebrahim Rahimpour, on Thursday told the Spanish ambassador that the "Spain's stance was a surprise and hasty," the ISNA and Mehr news agencies reported in Iran. On Sunday, Ahmadinejad said the world would witness the destruction of Israel soon. A day later, Spain's Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos called Ahmadinejad's comments "unacceptable."
