FM spokesman reacts to Swedish FM tweet

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Tuesday referred to Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde’s tweet, saying that unfortunately, the information of the Swedish authorities regarding the situation of Mr. Jalali, who is in prison due to security crimes, is incomplete and wrong.

Referring to the Swedish foreign minister’s tweet, which was published tonight after the telephone call of the two countries’ foreign ministers, he added that, as Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif explained to Ms. Linde during the phone talk, the judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Iran is independent and any interference in the issuance or execution of judicial rulings is rejected and unacceptable.
