Row after Iranian Olympians in South Korea were not given gift of latest Samsung handsets
Iran has summoned South Korea’s envoy after its athletes at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics were not included in a giveaway of Samsung smartphones, apparently because of concerns over sanctions.
The Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, waded into the row on Thursday, giving an ultimatum to Samsung that unless the decision was overturned immediately, he would give up using his personal Samsung.
