Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the foreign minister of Iran, has once more condemned Sweden and Denmark for defiling the Holy Qur’an and urged them to change their “wrong policies” before it is too late.

The comments were delivered by the Iranian foreign minister and his Malaysian colleague, Zambry Abdul Kadir, at a joint press conference held on Monday in Tehran.

Even though Sweden and Denmark have stated they are looking into methods to legally ban such activities in order to deescalate rising tensions with Muslim countries, more blasphemous acts against the Holy Qur’an have been committed in both nations.

In front of the Iranian embassy in Stockholm on Friday, according to Swedish media, Iraqi immigrant Salwan Momika burnt a copy of the holy Muslim book while yelling insults against Islam, Muslims, and the Qur’an.

A woman who attempted to stop him, nevertheless, was detained by the police.

Amir-Abdollahian said that in the meeting with his Malaysian counterpart both sides “vehemently condemned the desecration of holy books, Abrahamic religions and the Holy Qur’an” in Sweden and Denmark.

He also asked Stockholm and Copenhagen to exercise caution in light of the increase of extremism, violence, and terrorism in Europe, saying that the Muslim community and its countries would not allow such sacrilegious deeds.

Amir-Abdollahian stressed that Muslim nations would take the concept of forbidding the purchase of Swedish and Danish goods very seriously.

In protest at the ongoing blatant and egregious insults to the Muslim holy book, the deputy director general of the human rights division of Iran’s foreign ministry summoned the chargés d’affaires of Sweden and Denmark in Tehran on Sunday.

The Iranian diplomat said the governments of Sweden and Denmark have to bear the full responsibility and serious consequences of this blasphemous move.

Important, fruitful talks about enhanced Iran-Malaysia ties

In other parts of the news conference, the Iranian foreign minister claimed to have had significant and productive discussions regarding strengthening bilateral ties as well as other crucial regional and global challenges.

The Iran-Malaysia Joint Economic Commission, he continued, will conduct a session in Tehran soon, and its subcommittees would meet regularly to talk about consular, commercial, economic, and cultural matters as well as the battle against terrorism.

He mentioned that diplomatic attempts are being made to arrange trips for Malaysia’s prime minister to Tehran and for Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi to visit Kuala Lumpur.

According to Amir-Abdollahian, the two nations are eager to advance their scientific and technical collaboration and host competitive games in all sports.

He stated that he hoped the two nations will soon take the first step towards the liberation of female detainees by accelerating the extradition of offenders and the exchange of convicts.

Israel, only occupying, aggressive regime in West Asia

The top Iranian diplomat said Israel is the only occupying and aggressive regime in the West Asia and hoped that with prudence of regional states, the Muslim world and nations would increase their support for the Palestinian people and resistance front.

“Iran and Malaysia have consensus on [providing] support for the Palestinian people, fight against terrorism and [bolstering] multilateral cooperation among Muslim countries,” the top Iranian diplomat pointed out.
