The Foreign Ministry of Iran denounced Belgium’s move to imprison Iranian diplomat Asadollah Asadi on false terror-related charges, calling for his immediate release.

In a statement on Tuesday night, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh reacted to the media hype that came after an appeals court in Belgium issued rulings for three people who, as per baseless accusations, are said to have been in touch with Asadollah Asadi, the Iranian diplomat who is illegally jailed in Belgium.

“Unfortunately, today, under the pretext of holding appeals court for the three foregoing people, we are once again witnessing fabricated lies by Western media about Mr. Asadi, a diplomat of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” the spokesman said, according to the Foreign Ministry’s website.
