TEHRAN, April 23 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has called on the European Union (EU) to act responsibly and sanction the Israeli regime.Criticizing the European Union for deciding to impose further illegal restrictions on Iran just because the country has exercised its right to defend itself against the brazen aggression of the Israeli regime, the top Iranian diplomat stressed that the EU should not follow Washington's advice to appease the criminal Israeli regime.

"It is regrettable to see the EU deciding quickly to apply more unlawful restrictions against Iran just because Iran exercised its right to self-defense in the face of Israel’s reckless aggression," he wrote on X social media platform, formerly known as Twitter, on Tuesday.

"The EU should not follow Washington’s advice to satisfy the criminal Israeli regime." "It is also regrettable that while the Israeli regime continues its genocide against the Palestinians through different war crimes, missile attacks & famine, the EU’s reaction to such crimes is almost nothing more than hollow words.

The EU must act responsibly and sanction the Israeli regime." The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1.

The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus, IRGC said in a statement.

In response to the Israeli aggression, Iran attacked the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories with a barrage of drones and missiles early on Sunday.

Following the attack, Iran announced that it does not seek to create tension in the region and had carried out the anti-Zionist operation to punish the Zionist regime.

However, the Iranian political and military officials have strongly warned that the country would give a severe response in case of any fresh Israeli aggression.
