Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned the German ambassador to protest Berlin’s extradition of an Iranian diplomat to Brussels over his alleged link to a planned July attack on a gathering of the anti-Iran Mujahedin Khalq Organization terrorist group in France.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Wednesday that the director general for Europe affairs at the ministry met Michael Klor-Berchtold to convey the Islamic Republic’s strong opposition to the arrest, detention and extradition of the Iranian diplomat and said the move was part of a ploy devised by the MKO itself to ruin Iran-Europe relations.
