After spending a month in the Netherlands, Ambassador Cees Kole returned to Tehran today.
The Dutch ambassador returned to Tehran this evening. On 1 December 2011, Minister of Foreign Affairs Uri Rosenthal recalled Ambassador Kole to The Hague for consultations as a signal of protest against the ransacking of the British Embassy in Tehran. The Italian ambassador resumed his duties in mid-December.
The French and German ambassadors will also be returning to Tehran very soon.
