Iran: Legal proceedings still underway against al-Qaeda members
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi on Monday rejected speculations that an Egyptian team is expected to visit Tehran to take delivery of nine al-Qaeda members, who are in Iranian custody.
Asefi told reporters in his weekly press briefing that legal proceedings are underway against al-Qaeda members and Iran will decide what to do after completion of the investigations, IRNA reported.
Asked about Iran's stance towards the al-Qaeda suspects, Asefi conveyed that Iran has clarified its position in this regard. "If you mean what we will do with them, you should wait and see until the end of the legal proceedings."
