Iran has summoned the Swiss charge d’affaires, whose country represents US interests in Iran, over Washington's assassination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, decrying the attack as a "blatant instance of state terrorism".

RNA - Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Friday that the Swiss envoy was notified of Tehran's "strong protest".

"He was told that Washington's move is a blatant instance of state terrorism and the US regime is responsible for all its consequences," he said.
