Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki has criticized the Israeli ambassador for his comments about his visit to Portugal, saying some Israeli envoys are "Mossad agents."
Mottaki described the Israeli envoy’s comments as interference in other countries’ internal affairs.
He also warned other countries about the true identity of some Israeli envoys.
"Countries should be careful about the identity of Israeli envoys because some of them are Mossad agents," IRIB quoted Mottaki as saying.
The Israeli ambassador to Portugal, Ehud Gol, had criticized Portuguese officials for receiving the Iranian foreign minister.
"It is extraordinarily surprising and disappointing that some European countries are acting contrary to the decisions of the European institution of which they are a part," he said in a statement sent to the Portuguese news agency LUSA.
Portugal summoned the Israeli ambassador over his remarks.
