"People's representatives to Majlis have condemned the hostile measure and call for a severe approach to those responsible for the move by the government and Foreign Ministry.
"Meanwhile, they expect quick measures to be taken in this regard to determine the destiny of the kidnapped Iranian diplomats," he added.
Turning to the US failure in its challenge against Iran ever since the victory of Islamic Revolution, he said that Iran's achievements in the nuclear field forced the US to antagonize Iran by resorting to pressure.
