The Danish government said Tuesday it had interrupted what it said was an assassination plot in the country by Iran and called for the European Union to respond, at a critical moment in relations between Europe and Tehran.
Danish authorities this month arrested a Norwegian citizen of Iranian descent for allegedly planning the assassination of the leader of an ethnic Arab separatist group, Denmarks Security and Intelligence services said.
The separatist organization, the Ahvaz Liberation movement, is linked to a group Iran blamed for a terrorist attack on a military parade Sep. 22 that killed 25 people. The group blamed by Iran and Islamic State both claimed responsibility.
*** Tuesdays announcement was the latest in a series of allegations that Tehran is sponsoring acts of violence in Europe. It is totally unacceptable that Iran or any other foreign state plans assassinations on Danish soil. Further actions against Iran will be discussed in the EU, Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said on Twitter.
European governments have been building links with Iran in an effort to sustain the 2015 multinational nuclear accord that granted the country relief from sanctions. President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the accord in May and the U.S. is set to reimpose wide-ranging sanctions on Tehran on Monday.
Denmark said Tuesday it had recalled its ambassador from Tehran for consultation.
The government gave details of a large-scale police operation on Sept. 28, when authorities closed bridges into Copenhagen and suspended train operations in connection with the case.
The individual arrested was seen in late September conducting reconnaissance and photographing the residence of the leader of the Ahvaz Liberation movement, Danish authorities said.

European Union respond?
They’re too busy implementing those Sharia laws, imprisoning citizens that actually think they have free speech, defending Muslim rapists, and criticizing Trump.
The European Union will respond with a letter saying they are very concerned about these allegations. Along with a check.
They will then go on to quote something about how this is all bad ‘n’ stuff. This letter will be wrapped around the check.
There was something rotten in Denmark?..................
Their only hope is to elect a pro-gay, pro-Muslim community organizer!!

Boy that is one stroooooonnnnnnng statement. I’ll bet the Iranians are having second thoughts!
I know one who's available. And, he knows how to forge Birth Certificates.
Yep, the bureaucrats in the EU will send a strongly worded letter. And if that doesn't work, they'll send an even MORE strongly worded letter, WITH SOME WORDS IN CAPS so that the Iranians JUST KNOW that they're super serious.
I’ll do a fund-raiser for a one way ticket for him and Mooch!
I might only get a few dollars but I’ll help donate!
He must promise never to return. And Mooch must promise never to return. They must surrender their passports.
(not that they wouldn’t have someone forge something else in the future......)
