(ConservativeHub.com) – Switzerland has represented the diplomatic interests of the United States with Iran since Washington, DC, and Tehran cut all ties shortly after the 1979 launch of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Tensions have increased between the countries since Joe Biden assumed office in January, making the recent death of a high-ranking Swiss diplomat living in Iran a cause for concern.
Reuters reported on May 4 that a gardener found a Swiss diplomat’s body on the grounds of her apartment building shortly after an employee of the Swiss Embassy noticed she was missing. A Swiss Foreign Ministry spokesperson confirmed that an employee of its Tehran embassy died due to an accident but did not name the deceased person.
Mojtaba Khaledi, a spokesperson for Iran’s emergency services, told local media that the deceased person was the Swiss Embassy’s First Secretary. According to him, authorities hadn’t determined the reason for her fall yet.
