President Raisi orders all-inclusive probe into Azerbaijan embassy raid

Tehran, IRNA – President of the Islamic Republic Ebrahim Raisi has ordered an all-out investigation into the armed attack on the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Tehran.

Mohammad Jamshidi, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian President for Political Affairs, wrote on his Twitter account on Friday that Iran condemns the sad incident of assault on the embassy of the brotherly and neighboring country.

Ayatollah Raisi ordered an all-inclusive probe into the issue instantly after hearing the unfortunate story and offered his condolences and sympathy to the government, nation, and relatives of the dead diplomat, hoping for quick recovery of the injured persons, Jamshidi added.

According to the public relations office of the Judiciary (eadl.ir), immediately after the fatal attack on the embassy at 8:25 local time Friday morning, Tehran Prosecutor Mohammad Shahriari arrives at the place, and the initial probe into the crime showed that the attacker had a personal motive to commit the armed attack.

The attacker said that his wife entered the embassy in Tehran in the spring and never came back home; then, he filed a lawsuit in Urmia, West Azarbaijan Province, over his missing wife, who was from Baku, the capital city of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Legal investigations showed that his wife had returned to Azerbaijan, so the case was closed by the Iranian authorities, but the man continued to follow up on the issue from Iran’s Foreign Ministry and Azerbaijan’s Embassy in Tehran.

His wife with the help of her two family members traveled to the Azerbaijan Republic and did not return to Iran.
