Iran journalist flees Zarif delegation to stay in Sweden
An Iranian journalist covering Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s Nordic tour has fled the official delegation and applied for residency in Sweden, officials here said Tuesday. The Swedish Migration Agency said Amir-Tohid Fazel, a political reporter for Iran’s ultra-conservative news agency Moj, had “applied for a residence permit in Sweden on 21 August 2019”. It provided no further details. Fazel was travelling with Zarif’s delegation as part of an international tour to Finland, Sweden and Norway and other countries.
