Nether­lands Fore­run­ner of Ex­treme Anti-Iran Moves in Europe

Iran News - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN - An Ira­nian law­maker be­lieves that as the Nether­lands has not been di­rectly in­volved in the nu­clear talks, it can eas­ily play a lead­ing role in Europe’s anti-Iran moves and de­ci­sions.

Ira­nian par­lia­men­tar­ian Seyyed Mo­ham­mad-Javad Ab­tahi says un­for­tu­nately, the cur­rent rul­ing gov­ern­ment in the Nether­lands is strongly anti-Iran and anti-Is­lam.

He said the Nether­lands has warned its cit­i­zens to re­move sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion on their lap­tops and hand­sets dur­ing their trips to Iran. Ab­tahi ar­gued that the Nether­lands has shown it is a pi­o­neer in ex­treme move­ments in Europe, say­ing, “One may think France, Ger­many and Britain must take all anti-Iran and anti-Is­lam ac­tions, but the Nether­lands is the one that plays this role.”

“On the other hand, the Nether­lands has no di­rect role in the talks and can also act as a role model for other Euro­pean coun­tries in this re­gard.”

“The Nether­lands acts in a way to test the re­ac­tions of Iran, as well as its friends and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions, and in this way forces the in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions to pass res­o­lu­tions against Iran,” noted Ab­tahi.

This Ira­nian MP con­cluded that the Nether­lands has been the dom­i­nant party among Euro­pean coun­tries to push against Iran. More­over, the cur­rent rul­ing party in the Nether­lands has an anti-Iran ap­proach and its poli­cies are dic­tated by the strong Zion­ist lobby that is ac­tive there.

Ab­tahi’s com­ments came af­ter the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs of the Nether­lands sent out a let­ter warn­ing Dutch trav­ellers vis­it­ing Tur­key, China, Rus­sia and Iran that their elec­tronic de­vices may be un­safe in these coun­tries, BBC Türkçe re­ported on Mon­day.

The min­istry warned that data on elec­tronic de­vices, in­clud­ing lap­top com­put­ers and smart­phones, may be read and copied by third par­ties in these coun­tries, and said that sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion should not be car­ried on these de­vices under any cir­cum­stances.

“It is painful, but the warn­ings on cy­ber es­pi­onage will also ap­ply to our NATO ally Tur­key, as well as Rus­sia and Iran,” BBC Türkçe quoted a for­eign min­istry source as say­ing.
