CAIRO, November 10./TASS/. Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned his German counterpart Annalena Baerbock about retaliatory moves in case sanctions were imposed.
"Provocative, interventionist and undiplomatic stances don’t signal sophistication and wisdom," the top diplomat blogged on his Twitter page, addressing Annalena Baerbock.
"Undermining old ties has long-term consequences. Germany can choose engagement to address shared challenges-or confrontation," Hossein Amir-Abdollahian wrote. "Our response will be proportionate and firm," the diplomat stressed.
On Wednesday, the German foreign minister said that the European Union would continue its sanctions pressure on Iran.
German Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Andrea Sasse said on Monday that negotiations on new restrictions against the Islamic republic in the European Union were proceeding constructively.
Earlier, the EU imposed sanctions against 11 individuals and four legal entities of Iran, including the morality police. The EU attributed this step to violations of human rights in the country. Tougher restrictive measures against Tehran also topped the issues discussed at the meeting of G7 foreign ministers in Germany on November 3-4.
Unrest in Iran erupted after the funeral of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini on September 16. According to the official version, this Kurdish girl was detained by the morality police for not wearing her headscarf properly. During questioning, she had a heart attack and died. Social media, however, circulated information that Amini had been beaten by the police. Arrests of participants in the unrest were carried out in various Iranian cities.
