Attack on Iran Embassy in London aimed at appeasing Saudis: Shamkhani

A senior Iranian official says the attack on the Islamic Republic’s embassy in London was a “very disgraceful” bonus by the British government to sweeten a multi-billion dollar arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

“This ping pong game was designed by the British government and conducted simultaneously with a visit by one of the leaders of the regional countries to London,” Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said on Monday in reference to the laxity and passivity of UK government and police forces in response to the attack.

A number of attackers scaled the wall of Iran’s Embassy building in London on Friday and took down the Iranian flag.

According to the Islamic Republic News Agency, IRNA, British police did nothing to protect the compound during the attack.
