DUBAI – Iran will severely respond if Britain makes “new mistakes,” Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday, a day after Tehran briefly detained the UK envoy. The statement said:

Any new mistake of Britain will be severely confronted by Iran and London will be responsible for that. The presence of the UK envoy at an illegal rally is against diplomatic norms. Threatening Iran with fresh sanctions over that will cause tension between Tehran and London.

LONDON – Britain is keeping the security of its embassy in Tehran under review after Iran briefly arrested London’s envoy to the country, foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Monday. Describing the arrest as a “flagrant violation of international law,” Raab said in parliament:

Given the treatment of the ambassador, we are keeping the security measures for the embassy under review. Unity over Iran is important. Iran must receive the same messages from us, from Eurostan & from Pindostan.
