Iran summons Danish envoy over oil embargo

By Reuters

Iran's foreign ministry summoned the Danish ambassador on Tuesday to complain about the European Union's "illogical decision" to ban imports of Iranian oil, the Irna news agency said.

Denmark holds the rotating presidency of the 27-member EU, which decided on Monday to ban Iranian oil imports as part of the West's efforts to put pressure on Tehran to curb its nuclear programme.
