NETHERLANDS RECALLS IRANIAN AMBASSADOR IN TIT-FOR-TAT; FOLLOWS EU CHARGES OF IRAN "TERROR PLOTS"

In a diplomatic tit-for-tat the Netherlands on Monday recalled its ambassador to Iran after members of its diplomatic staff at its embassy in Tehran were expelled, Foreign Minister Stef Blok announced on Monday.

"[We] Have decided to recall the ambassador in Tehran for consultations," Blok said in a tweet. "The decision follows the expulsion of two Dutch embassy staff. That is unacceptable."

Though the immediate reasons for this latest spat between the two countries remains unclear, tensions have heightened after the European Union first began accusing Iran of "assassination attempts" and state-sponsored "terrorist plots" in Europe.

Last month Iran slammed EU charges as "groundless" — charges which Dutch officials had helped push into the open in tandem with other European leaders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what can the EU actually prove about these "alleged Iranian terror plots"?!?

Probably absolutely nothing.
