Canada shuts Tehran embassy, expels Iranian envoys

AFP , Friday 7 Sep 2012

Canada closed its Tehran embassy and vowed to expel Iranian diplomats Friday, slamming Iran's support for the Syrian regime and threats against Israel and expressing concern for the mission's safety.

"Canada's position on the regime in Iran is well known. Canada views the Government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today," Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said.
