The spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Overseas Affairs says Assadollah Assadi, the Iranian diplomat who was arrested in Europe on terrorism costs, has been let out following “5 years of struggling in captivity.”
Assadi was arrested in Germany on June 30, 2018. Iran says his arrest has been a part of a plot by Israel, “with some European safety companies working as brokers.”
Kanaani described Assadi’s arrest as “The Zionist-American situation of the Massive Lie” geared toward making a disaster within the relations between Iran and Europe, including “this conspiracy was hatched proper after the unilateral withdrawal of the US from the Iran nuclear deal, the Joint Complete Plan of Motion (JCPOA).”
On this regard, some European governments have been influenced by the Zionist regime and the hypocritical MKO terrorist group, and after the “arbitrary arrest” of the Iranian diplomat in violation of worldwide laws, they sentenced him to twenty years in jail in a theatrical, utterly political and doctored courtroom trial, he mentioned.
Finally, following consecutive joint safety conferences and consultations between the international ministers of Iran and Belgium, the liberty of this hostage diplomat was secured by means of a bilateral settlement with the Belgian authorities, Kanaani added.
Earlier Omani sources mentioned Assadi’s launch was made doable beneath an Oman-mediated prisonor swap between Iran and Belguim.
