Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Hassan Qashqavi has revealed a joint plot by the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) and the German tabloid Bild to launch a smear campaign against an Iranian diplomat.

"The orchestrated attempt of the MKO and the Zionist tabloid, Bild, in plotting, implementing and fueling this fabricated scenario once again indicates their convergence in hatching plots and conspiracies against the Islamic Republic," Qashqavi said on Sunday.


The Iranian official stressed that, given the grievances suffered by the Iranian consular member at the hands of the Frankfurt police, Iran's Foreign Ministry will pursue the restoration of the rights of the Iranian diplomat.


On July 4, Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned German Ambassador to Tehran Bernd Erbel to strongly protest against the German police confrontation with an Iranian diplomat in Frankfurt after he was attacked by an African woman on Monday while he was returning home from work.


The Iranian government has also demanded that German officials launch an immediate investigation into the issue and explain the misdemeanour by the police.


It's noteworthy that in 2010, two German nationals posing as reporters from Bild were arrested in Iran after they interviewed the son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a woman convicted of adultery and complicity in the murder of her husband.


Iran said the two had admitted to breaking the law, citing political motives behind the Western propaganda effort regarding the legal ruling against Mohammadi Ashtiani.
