Baghdad appointed a new ambassador, Saad Jawad Qandeel, to Tehran instead of Rajeh al-Mousavi, after a controversial footage went viral on social media, according to Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad Mahjoub.

Mahjoub declared in a statement on Friday that Qandeel will replace Mousavi as Iraq’s ambassador to Iran, according to IRNA.

Al-Mousavi had been summoned by the Iraqi Foreign Ministry, after his controversial video in which he was quarreling with a number of Iraqi citizens a few days earlier.
