Qassemi: Albania has no embassy in Iran

December 22, 2018 - 20:12

TEHRAN – Since Albania does not have an embassy in Iran, it is not possible to make a diplomatic move in retaliation for the expulsion of two Iranian diplomats from Tirana, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Saturday.

Qassemi’s remarks came after an IRNA correspondent asked him why the Foreign Ministry has not adopted a reciprocal measure to expel Albanian diplomats after the Iranian diplomats were expelled from the European country, the ministry website reported.

Since the 1990s, Iran opened an embassy in Tirana, but for economic reasons Albania could not afford to open an embassy in Iran, he added.
