Senior Lawmaker Deplores France's Interference in Iran's Affairs.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi lashed out at French officials for their interfering remarks on Iran.

"France has no right to interfere in Iran's internal affairs," Boroujerdi said on Tuesday.

He denounced French Foreign Ministry spokesman Philippe Lalliot's remarks as a violation of diplomatic principles.

"Instead of improperly interfering in Iran's internal affairs, the spokesman of the French Foreign Ministry had better visit Paris' prisons and end the deplorable situation of the political prisoners in France," Boroujerdi was quoted by press tv as saying.

Many protesters were arrested by the French police in 2012 when the government's plan to increase the minimum retirement age from 60 to 62 led to widespread demonstrations and coordinated strikes.
