Germany’s foreign minister calls for more sanctions against Iran after the attack

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has called for tougher sanctions against Tehran after Iran launched a direct and unprecedented attack on Israel.

Sanctions are already in place regarding the drones used in Russia’s war against Ukraine, she said. “I am very much in favor of extending them to Iran because we can see how dangerous its actions are at the moment,” she told public broadcaster ARD.

Her comments came after European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Brussels would discuss further sanctions against Iran, especially regarding Iran’s drone and missile programs.

The European Union imposed additional sanctions on Tehran in December in an effort to prevent Iran from producing drones used by Moscow in Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
