Berlin, Jan 27, IRNA — The German government warned against US Congress plans to step up sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.
Although the US administration has pursued a multilateral diplomacy with Iran, it has reportedly been under constant pressure from Congress. Powerful American lawmakers and influential pro-Zionist regime lobby groups have repeatedly called for increased economic pressure on Iran to extract further concessions.
Schaefer reiterated prospects for finally settling this 12-year-old conflict had never been this good.
He pointed to a recent joint op-ed piece in the Washington Post in which German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French and British counterpart made clear that right now was not the time to tighten sanctions against Tehran.
Schaefer expressed hope again that a political framework agreement could be reached by March.
