Italy will represent Canada's interests in Iran as a "protecting power", Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird said on Monday, 10 days after Canada broke off diplomatic relations with Iran.
"The government of Italy has agreed to provide critical support in urgent cases involving Canadians who require consular assistance in Iran, among other functions," Baird stated.
