Speaking to reporters in Tehran, Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei said the suspect had been on the wanted list of Iran's judiciary since a long time ago.
Albania's police arrested the suspect, but reports suggest that the individual is not in custody now, he added.
However, the spokesman noted, it does not mean that legal actions against the suspect has ended.
Relevant organizations are pursuing the case and more details will be made public if that person is extradited to Iran to face trial, Mohseni Ejei went on to say.
Back on Sunday, Iran's Police spokesman said the Interpol has arrested a female member of the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in Albania for involvement in the 1981 bomb blast in Tehran that killed many top Iranian officials.
General Saeed Montazer-al-Mahdi told Tasnim that the woman was arrested after she was put on the Interpol's Red Notice, a warrant that necessitates measures to seek the location and arrest of a person wanted by a judicial jurisdiction or an international tribunal with a view to his or her extradition.
On June 28, 1981, a powerful bomb went off at the headquarters of Iran's Islamic Republic Party in Tehran, while the members were holding a meeting. It was revealed later that the MKO was behind the terrorist blast.
72 Iranian officials were killed in the explosion, including Chief Justice Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti, four cabinet ministers, 27 members of the parliament and several other government officials.
The MKO - listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community - fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq and was given a camp by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
They fought on the side of Saddam during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-88). They were also involved in the bloody repression of Shiite Muslims in southern Iraq in 1991 and the massacre of Iraqi Kurds.
The notorious group is also responsible for killing thousands of Iranian civilians and officials after the victory of the Islamic revolution in 1979.
More than 17,000 Iranians, many of them civilians, have been killed at the hands of the MKO in different acts of terrorism including bombings in public places, and targeted killings.
