TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned Bahrain's Charge d'Affaires over death sentence issued against an Iranian national in the Arab country.

The Head of Social Affairs of Iranian Foreign Ministry in a meeting with the Bahraini diplomat on Tuesday delivered protest against cruel sentence issued against an Iranian expatriate in Bahrain and expressed Iran's anger over the matter.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry official voiced objection against the way of arrest and trial of the Iranian national which came without informing Iranian embassy in Manama and without the Iranian individual's access to lawyer.

The Iranian official called for Bahraini Charge d'Affaires to reflect the issue to his respective government and take measure to release the name of Iranian prisoners in Bahrain and fix a meeting between Iranian consul in Manama with the prisoners based on international convention.
