Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei tweeted today that the attack on the British Embassy in Tehran by a group of radicals last November was wrong. The ayatollah, who has recently started his Twitter account (@khamenei.ir), actually his office tweets for him with thousands of followers and no followings, said this on the episode:
“On that recent subject of the wicked (British) embassy, the emotions of the youths were correct, but their entry was not right.”
Nine months after the attack, which led Britain to the break up its diplomatic relations with Iran, the supreme leader is saying the action was wrong, and saying it through a tweet. Interesting times we live in!
