BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – Iran has summoned the Dutch ambassador to the Islamic Republic, following the deportation of two Iranian diplomats from the Netherlands, state-owned IRNA reported on Saturday.

The Spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahran Qasemi stated that the deportation of two of the Islamic Republic’s diplomats was both “illogical and legally unjustifiable”, adding that Iran’s has the fight to take reciprocal measures against the Netherlands.

“We expect officials of the country to stop leveling unwise and unjustified allegations to others and act on their international commitments to arrest and try the terrorist elements, for whom red notice has been issued even by Interpol, providing explanations on providing haven for the terrorist and criminal members of the hated MKO grouplet, whose hands are stained with blood of Iranian people,” the Iranian diplomat told reporters.

“Instead of expelling Iranian diplomats, the Dutch government should explain why it has harbored members of a terrorist organization,” Qasemi stated.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran wants preservation and expansion of relations with all countries based on understanding and mutual respect, while as victim of terrorist actions, re-emphasizes its principled stance for stern and non-discriminatory campaign of all members of the global community against terrorism,” Qasemi added.
