German Government condemns Iranian missile tests

16.03.2016 - Press release

A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement in Berlin today (16 March) on the latest ballistic missile tests by Iran:

The German Government condemns these missile tests and particularly the anti-Israeli threats they involved. We regard such tests as incompatible with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

Given the tense situation in the region, these tests do not further de‑escalation, but rather exacerbate the tensions. We call on Iran to refrain from actions that reinforce mistrust and conflicts and instead to play a constructive role in resolving regional conflicts.
