The Foreign Ministry summoned Tajikistan's Ambassador Nematullo Emomzoda on Wednesday to protest accusations that Iran was partly responsible for a car-and-knife attack that killed four western tourists cycling in the former Soviet republic.
"Tajikistan's ambassador in Tehran was summoned by the ministry's director general for Eurasian affairs and our country's strong protest over…the false and unfounded allegations against the Islamic Republic of Iran was conveyed to him," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in a statement.
