Like others before him, the Iranian ambassador, accompanied by his wife, appeared in front of the royal couple to greet them. After shaking hands with the king, the dignitary of the Islamic republic dodged that of Letizia, contenting himself with putting his hand on the heart. The look of the queen, immortalized by local television, speaks volumes, and has made people talk in the country. “Here is the rudeness of the Iranian ambassador towards Queen Letizia during the reception of the diplomatic corps”, we read on the account of the chain “El Debate”. This gesture is actually an Iranian tradition and a sign of respect prized by diplomats.
