But I'm not so sure this is how Iran's bullying lawmakers intended it.
"The voting (of the envoy) was not in accordance with the procedures of the government and therefore the minister of foreign affairs has instructed the permanent representative of Malaysia to the United Nations in Vienna to return to Malaysia for consultations," the foreign ministry said in a statement.
Malaysia last week was one of three countries with Cuba and Venezuela that voted against the resolution to rebuke Iran for building a second enrichment plant in secret.
Somehow I don't expect Cuba or Venezuela -- which has been known to inadvertently ruffle Iranian feathers despite Chavez's passionate affection for President Mahmud Ahmadinejad -- to display any such remorse.
