Sweden's foreign minister Carl Bildt has summoned Iran's ambassador to protest against the mass trials of election demonstrators and warned that further steps will be taken if necessary.

"We called in the Iranian ambassador to the foreign ministry to reiterate and reinforce this message and tell him what kind of measures we expect from Iran. On this and other issues," Bildt said in an interview on Sveriges Radio on Tuesday.

The meeting took place on Monday, Bildt confirmed.

Iran has put around 110 people in the dock for their alleged role in protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad since his re-election in June. Among them are a French lecturer and Iranian workers at the British and French embassies.

The foreign minister is simply letting the Iranian ambassador know what is expected in order to maintain relations with Sweden. That's not even close to meddling in another country's internal affairs.

just a few weeks ago I was listining to one of Iran's president speechs, he called even France, Italy a small countries which don't poss any mark of importance and significance. moreover Iran broadcasted the France/Britain ambassador employes' confessions against their countries which seems to be taken by force! this is a big insult on EU. don't be waiting on how Iran is gonna respond to this, Iran is keeping 3 US citizens in prison, after 10 days they showed no willing to say what is happening to them yet.. so i think Iran will not consider this summon.
