Tokyo Shimbun printed a Kyodo piece from Tehran saying that an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman on Monday dismissed the GOJ’s allegation that despite his diplomatic immunity, Japanese Ambassador Kobayashi was briefly detained and questioned by local security authorities in late April when he attended a party sponsored by an Iranian contact. The Iranian official said “A misunderstanding arose because the ambassador was not carrying his diplomatic ID. The security officials thus questioned him for a while.”
