Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called on all branches of the government to join forces to counter the negative impacts of brutal American sanctions against the Iranian nation.
“We are in contact with Austrian authorities in Tehran and Vienna, and hope that the Austrian police and security officials will soon reach a conclusion on the investigations that they opened on the case since last night,” Ghasemi said, hoping that future reports would reveal more detailed information on the identity of the attacker and his motive.
He noted his contact with the Iranian ambassador to Vienna, adding “no damage has been done to the residence of the Iranian envoy, but reports indicate that the soldier standing guard at the residential area has been injured and is now receiving treatment in hospital.”
Ghasemi also referred to some speculations that the assailant, who was shot dead “on the spot”, was a foreigner with an Austrian nationality, saying “we have called on the Austrian government to follow up on the case as soon as possible and pay closer attention to the safety of Iran’s diplomatic missions in this country.”
