TEHRAN, Aug. 13 (MNA) – Iranian diplomats, like diplomats from three other countries in Herat, are in perfect health and there are no worries, the Director-General of the Department of South Asian Affairs at the Iranian Foreign Ministry reassured.

"Many reporters call me and ask about the health and safety of Iranian diplomats in Herat. Sorry, I can not answer their questions one by one," the Director-General of the Department of South Asian Affairs at the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a Friday tweet.

Iranian diplomats, like the diplomats of the other three countries in Herat, are in perfect health and safety and there are no worries, Seyed Rasoul Mousavi wrote, referring to the situation of Iranian diplomats at the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Herat, Afghanistan.
