Iran expresses hope for peaceful resolution of crisis in France

IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman on Monday expressed the hope that the issue of yellow vest in France will be resolved peacefully.

Yellow vest issue is an internal issue of France, Bahram Qasemi noted.

Referring to France’s protest to Iran during the country’s 2009 presidential election, Qasemi criticized certain European countries’ double-standard approach and manipulation of such issues for political purposes.

He expressed the hope that the yellow vest protests in France are resolved peacefully.

Protests have engulfed France due to rise in fuel taxation and protestors wearing yellow jackets have no affiliation to any political groups or syndicates.
