Iran summons Danish ambassador over alleged assassination plot in Denmark

Iran summons Danish ambassador over alleged assassination plot in Denmark”

On Oct. 21, an ethnically Iranian Norwegian citizen was arrested in Sweden in connection with this plot and was extradited to Denmark.

The Danish ambassador is being recalled by Copenhagen over the alleged plot to kill three Iranians living in the Scandinavian country.

"In fact, the gravity of the matter is hard to describe", Foreign Minister, Andres Samuelsen said, adding that has been made crystal clear to the Iranian ambassador in Copenhagen.

"In the light of recent developments, Denmark wants to spearhead discussions of further European Union sanctions against Iran", Samuelsen said.

The person had, among others, been seen taking photos of the residences of members of the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz (ASMLA) in Ringsted, almost 60 kilometers (37 miles) southwest of Copenhagen.

Iran accuses the group of being responsible for an attack in the mainly ethnic Arab city of Ahvaz in southwestern Iran.

His remarks were in reaction to "biased reports that accused Iran of plotting an unsuccessful attempt to assassinate an opposition figure in Denmark".

Samuelsen said Iran's ambassador to Denmark, Morteza Moradian, had been summoned to the Foreign Ministry in Copenhagen and it was made "crystal clear" to him that "the gravity of the matter is hard to describe".

On Tuesday, the foreign Minister of Denmark Anders Samuelsen called the Iranian Ambassador in Copenhagen to Morteza of Morgiana to a meeting at the foreign Ministry for an explanation about the information on the illegal activities of Iranian intelligence in the Kingdom.

On Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi dismissed the claim and said it was in line "with the enemies' plots and conspiracies against the good and ever-growing Iran-Europe relations under present grave and special conditions", according to state-run IRNA news. "For almost 40 years, Europe has been the target of Iran-sponsored terrorist attacks".

"An Iranian intelligence agency has planned an assassination on Danish soil".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted his approval of Denmark's actions in apprehending the "assassin" in the alleged plot, which he was part of a decades-long campaign of terror orchestrated by Tehran.

Tehran has blamed the group for a terror attack on a military parade in the Iranian city of Ahvaz on September 22 that left at least 25 people dead.

The same day, Rasmussen also posted a picture of himself and British Prime Minister Theresa May. The country will react toward Iran and will speak with its European partners about "further steps", he said, without giving details.

Iran has since carried out several operations in Iraq and Syria in retaliation.
