Denmark Recalls Ambassador to Iran over alleged Foiled ''Attack''

EPA/KAY NIETFELD

Denmark has recalled its ambassador to Iran after it accused Tehran of plotting a foiled "attack" against three Iranians living in the Scandinavian country, al-Jazeera reports.

"I have decided to recall Denmark's ambassador in Tehran for consultations...Denmark can in no way accept that people with ties to Iran's intelligence service plot attacks against people in Denmark," Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen told reporters.

The alleged plot was "totally unacceptable", he said, adding that he was consulting with "partners and allies", including the European Union, about possible sanctions.

Earlier on Tuesday, the head of Denmark's intelligence service PET, Finn Borch Andersen, said his agency believed the Iranian intelligence service "was planning an attack in Denmark" against three Iranians suspected of belonging to the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz.
