The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Saturday summoned Sweden's acting charge d'affaires over his country's "baseless and biased" accusations against Tehran, the official news agency IRNA reported.

During the meeting with the Swedish envoy, the Iranian Foreign Ministry  conveyed Tehran's protest against the controversial remarks made by a Swedish official in Stockholm, adding that the remarks had been made "based on disinformation and under Israel's influence," according to the IRNA.

Daniel Stenling, head of counterintelligence at the Swedish Security Service, accused on Thursday the Iranian government of "using criminal networks within Sweden" to target Israeli or Jewish interests in the Scandinavian country.
