Iran summons German ambassador over extradition of diplomat

October 11, 2018

TEHRAN – Lamenting Germany’s extradition of an Iranian diplomat to Belgium, months after he was arrested on suspicion of plotting a bomb attack on a meeting of Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) in Paris, the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday summoned the German ambassador to Tehran.

“The diplomat has become the victim of conspiracies of the enemies and ill-wishers whose intention was to harm the constructive relations of Iran with Germany and other European countries,” ISNA on Wednesday quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi as saying.

It came after German security officials said the 46-year-old diplomat based in Austria has been extradited from Germany to Belgium.
