Spy Den is a name given to the
U.S. Embassy in
Tehran because of its bad records of covert activities against
Iran hostage crisis which was a diplomatic crisis between Iran and the
United States. 52
Americans were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981, after a group of students took over the American Embassy in support of the
Imam Khomeini issued a statement supporting the seizure and calling it the second revolution and the embassy an American spy den in Tehran.
US diplomatic ties have been cut ever since and the Spy Den has now become a museum. Just looking at magnificent embassies of other nations in Tehran, it is certain that really civilized nations have understood the fact that having representation in Iran is not a right but it’s a privilege.
