Iran’s MFA called on the Ambassador of Switzerland, whose country represents the US interests in Iran, Tasnim reported.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said that the Swiss envoy was called in and notified of Tehran’s “strong protest” over “illegal” and “destabilizing” presence of American forces in the Persian Gulf’s northern waters and near Iran’s coasts.

The ambassador was also told about the need to comply with international maritime standards and freedom of navigation.

The Swiss ambassador was informed that Iran will defend its maritime rights with all its might and will give a “appropriate response” to any threat and wrong move by the US armed forces in the Persian and Oman gulfs.
