Iran holds Zionist regime accountable for kidnapping of diplomats

Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Sunday holding the Israeli Zionist regime accountable for a 1982 kidnaping of four Iranian diplomats in Lebanon.

The statement was issued on the 39th anniversary of this illegal Zionist act.

As Lebanon was under occupation of the Zionist regime in 1982, the regime is both politically and legally responsible for the kidnaping of the Iranian diplomats, the statement said.

The statement added that the families of these diplomats are still waiting for the release and return of their beloved ones.

It said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly announced that it has clues and documents which prove that the Iranian diplomats have been handed over to the Zionist forces and then transferred to the prisons of the regime.

Referring to a report by a former UN secretary general and a letter to him by the then Lebanese prime minister in 2008, the statement called on the incumbent UN secretary general and other international organizations and human rights agencies to probe into the case which is related to international conventions and is accepted by the international community.  

The statement also thanked Lebanon for its good cooperation, urging combined efforts of Tehran and Beirut to uncover the hidden dimensions of this incident.
