ROME - Italy is considering closing its embassy in Tehran and will summon the Iranian ambassador to ask for guarantees for the safety of the country's diplomats after the assault on the British embassy, Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said on Wednesday.

"We're seeking firm guarantees," from the Iranians, Terzi told reporters after testimony in parliament. "We're reflecting rapidly on the presence of our ambassador and our diplomatic personnel (in Tehran)," he said.

He also said Italy would decide together with its European allies and the United States about a possible oil embargo against Iran.
