Hungary keeps Iranian foreign minister from attending chemical weapons conference

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akhbar Salehi was prevented from attending a conference in Holland on banning chemical weapons(!) thanks to the good sense of the Hungarian government.
A Foreign Ministry official said that Salehi's plane had got clearance from different European countries to pass through their airspace, but, Hungary refused clearance for technical reasons.

He said that Hungary's refusal to give clearance to Salehi's plane was not acceptable and the Foreign Ministry sought explanation from the Hungarian ambassador to Tehran.

Salehi was due to give lecture to the Conference on Banning Chemical Weapons in The Hague, the Netherlands, on Sunday night.
Apparently the expected presence of an official representative of the Iranian government did not bother anyone else at the conference. What a surprise....
