TEHRAN, Jun.25 (ISNA)-Iran's embassy spokesman in Iraq, Khalil Sadati said Iran had asked the UN representative in Iraq to consider the latest status of the five kidnapped Iranian diplomats.
Early January, U.S. forces raided the Iranian general consulate office in Arbil and kidnapped five Iranian diplomats accusing them as responsible for the unrest in Iraq.
Speaking to ISNA, Sadati said that the issue had been discussed in the recent meeting between Iran's ambassador to Baghdad and the UN representative in Iraq.
He said in the meeting, the UN representative was asked about the initiatives that had taken place for the release of Iranian diplomats.
When asked whether the Iraqi foreign minister's promise to reconsider kidnapped diplomats case were likely to come true, Sadati responded by saying that it wasn't yet confirmed if the U.S. would release the diplomats.
"There has been some talk about the U.S. planning to reconsider the dossier based on their interior regulations. If the dossier isn't complete then they will continue with the detention. There are still no evidences indicating their release," he said.
