During these meetings, the Iranian foreign ministry's director-general for Europe asked the German and French envoys that according to what standards, training to make bombs, planning for street clashes, cooperation with foreign governments, and intelligence services to topple the Iranian political structure and be an accomplice to armed offenses can be named journalism? Or according to what definition a journalist is under monitoring, protection, and cooperation with French internal security organization and in close contact with Mossad, engages in gathering large-scale sensitive intelligence, including military intelligence and giving that information to intelligence services of specific countries?, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman stated.

He pointed out that in spite of French officials' being informed of anti-Iran moves and activities of Rouhollah Zam, the French foreign ministry had previously confirmed that Zam had been entirely free to conduct his activities.
