Iranian MPs call for severance of economic ties with Denmark

Tehran, Oct 10, IRNA-Some 232 Majlis deputies, in a letter to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on Tuesday called for breaking off economic relations with Denmark.

The letter was read by Moussa Qorbani, a member of Majlis presiding board during this morning open session of the legislative body.

Referring to the brazen move of Denmark's national TV in repeating the blasphemous acts against Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) which triggered the anger of the Muslim world, the letter regretted that the insult was repeated by Denmark Television.

Denmark's national TV2 channel on Friday broadcast excerpts from a video lampooning Prophet Mohammad.

Since such a move is not tolerable, the Majlis deputies propose severance of the two countries economic relations and even cutting off of bilateral diplomatic ties in case of repetition, the letter said.

The Danish press earlier this year published blasphemous cartoons against the Prophet Mohammad which sparked worldwide protests and condemnation.

Danish FM condemns blasphemy of holy Prophet Mohammad

Tehran, Oct 10, IRNA-Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller in a phone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Manouchehr Mottaki here Tuesday strongly condemned the blasphemy of the Islamic Prophet Mohammad by a group of Danish youth.

According to a report released by the Media Department of the Foreign Ministry, Moeller underlined that the move has also been condemned by Denmark's prime minister in a statement issued on Sunday.

He said that the desecration took place by some members of the youth wing of the Danish People's Party and condemned such an unacceptable and inappropriate approach.

For his part, Mottaki welcomed such condemnation of the blasphemy by Danish prime minister and foreign minister and underlined that all faithful Iranian people and students are furious over the desecration, particularly given this is the second time that Muslims' most sacred beliefs are blasphemed.

The Iranian minister stressed the sensitivity of the issue and warned Denmark against its consequences, adding that some Zionist associations are involved in anti-Islam instigation.

Mottaki called on his Danish counterpart to do his best to stop such insulting provocations.

Denmark's national TV2 channel last Friday broadcast excerpts from a video lampooning Prophet Mohammad.

The Danish press had previously published blasphemous cartoons against the Prophet Mohammad, which sparked worldwide protests against the sacrilege.
