The new Iranian ambassador in Paris, Bahram Ghassenmi, has received the largest budget allocation from the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Tehran intends to make its embassy in France the spearhead of its diplomacy in Europe, to counter American hostility.
According to our sources, since his appointment last March, the Iranian ambassador has launched a major seduction operation targeting politicians, the media and businessmen. He invited some 40 parliamentarians and dozens of journalists and business leaders to informal meetings. He also made numerous requests for hearings with the diplomatic cell of the Elysee, the Quai d’Orsay, the Ministry of Defence and the Prime Minister.
