In Berlin today (12 October) a Federal Foreign Office spokesperson issued the following statement in this connection:
“Foreign Minister Westerwelle is very concerned by the news from Washington.
The German Government is relieved that the US authorities have apparently managed to abort a planned terrorist attack.
Indications that official bodies in Iran may be involved make the case even more disquieting.
The German Government calls on the Iranian Government to contribute to a full investigation of these allegations. Those involved in the planned attack and those who masterminded it must be brought to justice.”
