Denmark, Oct. 31, 2018 - The Danish Foreign Ministry has summoned its ambassador in Tehran on Tuesday afternoon following the arrest of an Iranian regime intelligence agent in this country.

At a press conference, Danish Foreign Minister Anders Sameulsen said his country will be seeking to impel the European Union to issue new sanctions against Tehran in reaction to the Iranian regime’s measures to carry out this attack.

Morteza Moradian, the Iranian regime’s ambassador in Copenhagen, was summoned and informed “very clearly” that “how important and unacceptable” this issue is, according to Sameulson.



The U.S. administration responded to the Iranian regime’s terror plot in Denmark through a tweet by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.



The Danish intelligence service has arrested an Iranian regime Ministry of Intelligence agents intending to carry out a terror attack in Denmark, according to Danish security service chief Finn Borch Andersen. The Iranian regime had plotted a terror attack in Denmark and intended to assassinate a member of an Ahvazi group.

Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen also reacted to this issue, emphasizing the subject will be raised with the European Union.



During a televised press conference, Borch Andersen noted that the Iranian regime already was suspected of targeting opposition groups abroad, according to the Associated Press. He cited a foiled bombing attack that targeted a June rally organized by an Iranian opposition group near Paris.

Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen and Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen on Tuesday both described an alleged Iranian attack in Denmark “totally unacceptable.” The country will respond and speak with European partners about “further steps,” they said in separate statements, according to the Associated Press.

In a recent video message to a session held on October 4 focusing on the Iranian regime’s new wave of terrorism and reactions from Europe and the United States, Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi emphasized how the mullahs have said time and again that their victory relies on spreading terror. As a result, forcing Western governments to remain silent would be a major victory for them. The most destructive type of appeasement in the face of the Iranian regime’s religious dictatorship is remaining silent following terror attacks, she added. Unfortunately, this policy is widely witnessed today in Europe. This is a mistake and Iranian refugees and Europe’s security will be paying the price.



Mrs. Rajavi highlighted the following on behalf of the Iranian people:

- A firm policy is necessary against the Iranian regime.

- Their terrorist dossiers must be made public.

- Close this regime’s embassies, known espionage/terror centers.

- Don’t do business with companies linked to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and other state-controlled firms. Any such deals with these entities will be tantamount to financing terrorism.

- Do not remain silent in the face of executions, prisoners being tortured and human rights violations in Iran.

- Perpetrators of Iran’s crimes against humanity in the past 40 years must face justice.

And to prevent the Iranian regime’s terror plots in European countries, the European Union should implement its 29 April 1997 initiative on the Iranian regime’s operatives and intelligence agents.

- Stop all bilateral meetings and visits to Iran by ministers and senior government officials

- Confirming the EU member states’ policy of not providing weapons to the Iranian regime

 - Cooperation aimed at guaranteeing visas not being issued for Iranians related to the regime’s intelligence and security apparatus; focusing on expelling the Iranian regime’s intelligence operatives from EU members states.
