Many Iranian officials have been subject to a travel ban as part of the European Union sanctions imposed on the country due to its nuclear development program. Salehi was originally on that list when he was the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency. He was later taken off the list when he became the foreign minister.
“We have called for Hungarian ambassador to explain the issue since the reasons provided by officials of the country were not convincing," said the source in Iran’s foreign ministry to reporters.
Iran has canceled Salehi’s trip to Netherland as a result.
