A US congressman made a gaffe when he asked Obama administration to expel Iranian diplomats from Washington.
In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Rep. Chris Collins told that the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats was a political move by the Obama administration. He also wondered why the President hasn’t expelled Iranian diplomats as well!
“I’m certainly not in a position to do it. I’m going to say I believe that was a political act, and why weren’t we expelling others from Iran, from north Korea and from China.” Collins told.
This remark comes as the US does not maintain diplomatic relations with Iran; therefore, there are no diplomats to expel.
