Germany’s Scholz wars escalate further after Iran’s airstrikes

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has warned against “any further escalation” following Iranian airstrikes on Israel.

“It cannot continue like this,” Scholz said on Sunday in the Chinese metropolis of Chongqing. “We will do everything we can to prevent further escalation.”

Scholz again strongly condemned the Iranian attack. “This is an absolutely unjustifiable attack, it is a serious escalation of the situation,” he said, adding that the attack was in no way acceptable, understandable or tolerable.

“All we can do is warn everyone, especially Iran, not to continue in this way,” Scholz said. He reiterated German solidarity with Israel, which had every right to defend itself since the terrorist attack by Hamas on October 7 last year.

Scholz announced that a meeting would take place later with the ministers responsible for security in his cabinet. Minister of Foreign Affairs Annalena Baerbock, Minister of Defense Boris Pistorius and Interior Minister Nancy Faeser will participate.

The meeting will take place before Scholz takes part in a video conference of G7 leaders later on Sunday.
