Iran’s Ambassador does not threaten journalists

London Iranian Embassy to the UK in a statement rejected allegations against Iran Ambassador Hamid Baeidinejad, saying he has never threatened anybody.

"The allegations against the ambassador of Iran to the UK issued by the Reporters Sans Frontiere (RSF) and carried by some Western media are categorically false and rejected, Iranian mission wrote in its official Twitter account.

"Ambassador Baeidinejad has never threatened anyone, let alone any journalist," it added

"Merely stating that some self-exiled Iranians, who may or may not be employed as journalists by foreign-backed networks, are activists working to undermine the system of government in their homeland, is not a threat: it is a fact."
