Iran summons Swiss envoy over US “abduction” of scientist

-

TEHRAN June 8 (Reuters) – Iran summoned the Swiss ambassador in Tehran on Tuesday and handed over documents which it says showed a missing Iranian nuclear scientist had been kidnapped by the United States, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Iran has no diplomatic relations with the United States and U.S. interests in Tehran are handled by the Swiss embassy.

Shahram Amiri, a university researcher working for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation, disappeared during a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia a year ago and Tehran accused Riyadh of handing him over to the United States, a charge Saudi Arabia has denied.

Iran’s state television showed on Monday a video of what it said was Amiri. In the footage Amiri said he had been kidnapped and taken to the United States where he was “tortured”.
