ROME (AP) — Italy has summoned Iran’s envoy to the foreign ministry to express its “firm condemnation” of the storming of the British embassy in Tehran and to warn that Italy may take other steps.

The foreign ministry said Thursday that Italy also demanded security guarantees for diplomats during the meeting with the envoy, Mehdi Akouchekian.

Iranian protesters on Tuesday stormed and ransacked the British embassy and British diplomatic compounds after an apparently state-approved rally denounced Britain’s support of U.S. sanctions over Iran’s controversial nuclear program.

Germany, France and the Netherlands recalled their ambassadors in solidarity with Britain.

Italy long had strong economic ties with Iran but reduced trade substantially in recent years.
