AL KUWAIT, January 7. /TASS/. Qatar has recalled its ambassador from Tehran, the director of the Foreign Ministry’s Asian Affairs Department said on Wednesday.
"The ministry summoned this morning Qatar's ambassador to Tehran against the backdrop of attacks on the embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Tehran," QNA quoted Khalid Ibrahim Abdulrahman Al-Hamar as saying.
Relations between Saudi Arabia and its allies and Iran aggravated after a mob of protesters angry with the kingdom's execution of prominent Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr attacked its embassy in Tehran over the weekend.
Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Sudan announced they were severing diplomatic ties with the Islamic Republic, while the United Arab Emirates decided to downgrade the level of its diplomatic representation in Iran.
