Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the expulsion of German diplomats, on Wednesday, and considered them “undesirable elements” due to “German interference in Iran’s internal and judicial affairs,” according to the official news agency (IRNA).
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Nasser Kanaani, said that the German ambassador was summoned by the ministry’s director general for Western Europe.
Kanani added: “The Islamic Republic of Iran will take decisive measures against the abuses.”
“The priority of the Islamic Republic of Iran is always to maintain interaction in an atmosphere of respect, but if some parties want to ignore our country’s national principles and sovereignty, then identifying alternative options is inevitable,” the spokesman said.
And last Wednesday, Germany announced the expulsion of two Iranian diplomats, in objection to the death sentence of a German citizen of Iranian origin, Jamshid Sharmahd.
