Envoy says U.S., Israel seeking to harm Iran-Europe ties

January 2, 2019

TEHRAN – Iran’s ambassador to Tirana, Gholamhossein Mohammadnia, has said his expulsion from Albania was an American-Israeli plot to harm Iran’s relations with Europe.

“Because of its low capacity and strength, the Albanian government could not endure the pressure and fell victim to the American-Israeli plot,” IRNA on Wednesday quoted Mohammadnia as saying.

He emphasized that Iranian diplomats have always acted in accordance to international law.

In December, Albania’s Foreign Ministry announced that it had expelled two Iranian diplomats suspected of “involvement in activities that harm the country’s security.”
