Chia sẻ
(VOVWORLD) -Prime Minister Edi Rama announced on Wednesday that Albania has decided to sever diplomatic relations with Iran after Albanian officials had accused Tehran of carrying out the July 15 cyber attack on the Albanian Government website. 

He said the Council of Ministers had made a decision with immediate effect on terminating diplomatic relations with Iran and sent a note to the Iranian Embassy. All embassy staff, including diplomatic and security personnel, were ordered to leave Albania within 24 hours.

On Wednesday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement calling Albania’s decision a miscalculated and short-sighted measure in international relations.
