Sanction of Iranian intelligence service by Europe due to frustration: MP

Tehran, Jan 9, IRNA- Sanction of Iran’s intelligence apparatus was due to Europeans’ frustration since they could not fulfill their international obligations and be accountable to the public opinion, therefore are looking for excuses.

Member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Seyyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, made the remark on Wednesday in a comment on sanction of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and two Iranians by the Netherlands.

He added, 'The issue that has been made by Denmark a while ago, and then raised by the Netherlands, is one of the examples that show that they have been unable to live up to the promise.'

He continued, 'While everyone knows, the Dutch are now supporting and provide an office in the country for al-Ahwazieh terrorist group, which recently martyred several dozen Iranian citizens in a terrorist operation; or the rest of the European countries, where terrorists live there, give the terrorists podium and are holding conference for them.'

The MP insisted, “The (European) countries raise such issues to question the Islamic Republic of Iran in order not to abide by their promises. Europeans had announced they would set up Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) on January 1st. We crossed from January 1, and nothing has happened yet. So they are now in question and they have to answer the public opinion why they do not fulfill their obligations.'
