Citing the Danish Foreign Ministry, the Wall Street Journal reported new sanctions from the European Union on Tuesday against Iran, alleging involvement in acts of sabotage in Paris, France, and France. Copenhagen in Denmark.
Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen claimed that this measure was not in contradiction with European support for the Iran nuclear deal (also known as the Global Joint Action Plan, JCPOA) ; “But it is imperative that the European Union sends a strong message to defend its European values ??and its security”.
He also claimed that the European Union was going to sanction two Iranian individuals and a legal entity.
On his Twitter page, the Danish Foreign Minister wrote that the EU had just agreed to punish an Iranian intelligence service for what he called assassination plots on European soil.
Previously, the French government claimed that Iran was behind an attempted bombing in the suburbs of Paris in June, a claim that Tehran strongly rejected.
In the process, France sanctioned the property of two Iranian nationals and the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence.
The Danish government did not take much time to make such an allegation. In a coordinated stance with the United States, Denmark claimed that Iran had been involved in planning an attack on Danish territory. The Iranian ambassador in Copenhagen was then summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The spokesman of the Iranian diplomacy, Bahram Qassemi, then brushed aside this allegation which he described as malicious.
According to the Iranian diplomat, these allegations are part of the conspiracies of the enemies who are displeased with the good and growing relations between Iran and Europe in the current nerve conditions.
Similarly, Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok has also made baseless allegations against Iran.
Stef Blok claimed that Iran was responsible for the assassination, in 2015 and 2017, of “two individuals opposed to the Iranian government” who apparently lived in the Netherlands.
