If I was that Foreign Minister I was smilingly and diplomaticly say to the Ambassador of Iran that I thank him so much for his interest in our personal affairs, I appreciate the concern for the display of sensibility. After that, I'd also say that I was confident the government of Iran would show a parallel exquisite sensibility fixing the troublesome and utterly delicate situation of Nazanin, hence releaving the sleep of the people of Portugal from such a disturbing nightmare.

Reciprcity, that's the answer. Otherwise we'd be going in the wrong direction, that's why.
