Iran calls for investigation on visa issue

New York, April 15, IRNA – Iranˈs Permanent Representative Office at the United Nations called for prompt meeting of Committee of Relations with the hosting government to consider US violation of its obligations on issuing visas.

In the letter, Iran expressed its great concern over the US move not to issue a visa for Iranˈs designated ambassador and said this act of the hosting government is contrary to international laws and the US obligations upon headquarters agreement, international traditions and a disruption of the representativesˈ activity in the UN.

The US government, contrary to article 4 of hosting country agreement with the UN on its obligation to issue visa for ambassadors and diplomats of other states, has declared that it would not issue a visa for Iranˈs choice for its representative in the UN, Hamid Abu-Talebi.

Iran protested the decision and has said it will follow the case through legal procedures.
