Experts say that after expelling two Iranian diplomats, there is an increased danger in Albania.

According to them, the most probable attacks are terrorist or cybernetic ones.

Last week, Albania expelled two Iranian diplomats, identified by authorities as Mohammad Ali Arz Peimanemati and Seyed Ahmad Hosseini Alast.

One year ago, in December 2018, Albania expelled the Iranian Ambassador and another diplomat for breaching our national security.

The decision was welcomed by the US State Department, but the presence of the dissident mujahedeen has been a constant cause for tension between Iran and Albania, according to Deutsche Welle.

Minister Cakaj stated that the diplomats,  Mohammad Ali Arz Peimanemati and Seyed Ahmad Hosseini Alast, were declared ‘persona non grata’ for conducting activities that went against their status.

Albanian Secret Service and intelligence agencies, assisted by foreign partners, have obtained information about their intentions to attack the US Embassy in Baghdad, as planned by Soleimani, which confirms the reasons that led to his killing.

Seyed Ahmed Hosseini Alast was in Albania as a cultural attaché, but he served as a member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, which was declared ‘a terrorist organization’ by the US State Department.

He has been very active with plans to organize destabilizing terror acts against the coalition forces in the Middle East. He used his diplomatic status in Albania to cover an activity that undermines the country’s national security.

Mohamed Peimanemati was in Albania as an advisor to the Iranian Embassy, but in fact, he was a member of Iran’s intelligence organization, Mois, and responsible for several terror acts in EU countries.

In December 2018, Albania declared as “persona non grata” the Iranian Ambassador, Gholamhossein Mohammadnia and Mostafa Roudaki.

Two Iranian citizens were detained under suspicion of plotting to carry out a terror attack during a Bektashi religious holiday.
