Where is Iran's diplomat?

 Yemen Post Staff

Iran has once again called on Yemen this Monday to secure the immediate and safe release of its abducted diplomat, Nour Ahmad Nikbakht.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian asked Yemeni officials to "redouble their efforts."
On July 21st, Nour Ahmad Nikbakht, an administrative attaché at Iran embassy was kidnapped by a group of unknown armed men as he was traveling in his vehicle in Hadda (a southern district of Sana'a) and taken to an undisclosed location.
Nikbakht , an administrative staff member of the Iranian Embassy in Sana’a, was on his way to work from his home in the city’s diplomatic quarter on July 21 when unidentified gunmen blocked the road, forced him out of his vehicle and abducted him.
Frustrated by what it translated as inaction by the Yemeni authorities, Tehran sent in August a delegation to overview all matters with Sana'a central government and determine a common course of actions.
It is important to note that Iran and Yemen have had rather strained diplomatic relations since President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi accused Tehran of meddling within its internal affairs by financially and militarily supporting dissident militias, something Iran has always categorically rejected.
Amir-Abdollahian told the press on Monday that reports indicated that Nikbakht is in good health.
By its own admission Yemen Foreign Minister, Abu Bakr al-Qirbi said on August 14 that the authorities had no idea as to what had happened to the Iranian diplomat or where had hed been taken.
