Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel issued the following statement in Berlin today (7 June) on the attacks in Tehran:

I condemn the attacks in the Iranian parliament building and at the mausoleum of revolutionary leader Khomeini in the strongest possible terms. Once again, unscrupulous criminals have killed many innocent people.
