Dutch Foreign Minister Wopke Hoekstra has summoned the Iranian ambassador over the recent execution of two protesters in the country.
Hoekstra called on other EU member states to follow suit in condemning the “horrific executions.”
The Dutch government summoned the Iranian ambassador last month after protesters were killed.
Hoekstra also mentioned that the EU is considering new sanctions against the Iranian regime.
On Friday, several Dutch politicians called on the government to lead Europe in taking action against the Iranian regime.
In response, Hoekstra stated that the Netherlands will join other countries in “keeping up the pressure on Iran.”
In protest of the executions, a demonstration was held at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Hague on Saturday.
The protest, organized by the Association of Iranian Academics in the Netherlands, featured demonstrators waving flags and holding up pictures of the executed men, shouting slogans such as “Stop executions in Iran” and “Khamenei killer.”
