 Albanian authorities announced today that they have ordered the expulsion from Albania of two Iranian diplomats who has been declared unwanted.

The decision was announced by the Acting Foreign Minister Gent Cakaj in a Facebook post.

The two representatives of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been urged immediately to leave the territory of the Republic of Albania”, writes Mr. Cakaj.

Albanian government sources told VOA that the two diplomats are being expelled for activities against the MEK group. According to them, the cultural attaché Seyed Ahmed Hosseini Alast had held senior positions in the Revolutionary Guard of the Islamic Republic and Mohamed Peimanemati was a member of Iran's Mois Operational Intelligence Unit and was responsible for several terrorist acts in EU countries.

According to sources, they had been collaborators of Qasem Soleimani.

This is the second time Albania has declared unwanted the Iranian diplomats.

In December 2018, Iran's ambassador to Albania and another embassy diplomat were expelled from the country after being suspected of being involved in "activities that threaten security in the country". At that time, the Albanian Foreign Ministry specified that the decision had been made in consultation with the Allied countries, because of their contrary activity in Albania to their diplomatic status.
