The Foreign Ministry has urged France as the current EU president to block what Teheran described as an "anti-Islamic" gathering in Germany later this month, Iran's state radio reported on Thursday.
The radio said a top French diplomat in Teheran was summoned to the ministry to hear Iran's complaint over the "growth of anti-Islamic sentiments in Europe."
The report refered to an "Anti-Islamification" conference by a small right-wing organization of about 400 members, due on September 19 in Cologne.
The right-wingers have petitioned against the construction of a mosque in the German city and against what they call the "Islamization" of Europe - not the existence of Islam.
