Iran Summons Swiss Ambassador Over Trump Comments on Iraq Attack

(Bloomberg) -- Iran summoned the Swiss ambassador in Tehran on Saturday after U.S. President Donald Trump accused an Iranian-backed militia group of an attack that killed two U.S. service members in Iraq.

The Swiss envoy Markus Leitner, who represents U.S. interests in Iran, was warned against “any uncalculated U.S. measure and its consequences,” Iran’s foreign ministry said in a statement on its official Telegram channel. The ministry dismissed Trump’s accusation as “baseless and dangerous.”
