Iranians staged a series of demonstrations and rallies across the German capital protesting the presence in Berlin of the top diplomat of a regime holding the record number of executions across the globe. These protests, starting before noon, continued into the night.

Iranians first rallied outside the German Foreign Ministry expressing their abhorrence regarding the presence of the mullahs’ foreign minister. A delegation of Iranians living in Germany went to the Foreign Ministry and delivered a statement to senior officials on the demands raised by the demonstrators based on expelling the Iranian regime’s foreign minister and conditioning any and all relations with the religious dictatorship on the mullahs’ recognizing and respecting human rights.

Berlin’s Channel 1 aired various reports on the demonstrations held by Iranians and German citizens against the Iranian regime top diplomat’s visit to Berlin.

“Exiled Iranians rallied outside the Foreign Ministry in downtown Berlin protesting the visit by the Iranian regime’s foreign minister. They specifically protested the extremely high number of executions in their country,” Channel 1 reported.

The demonstrators emphasized any economic relations with Iran must be conditioned on the improvement of human rights conditions.

 

“Moreover, Iranians in Germany expressed their opposition to the Iranian regime’s support for the Syrian dictator,” the Channel 1 report added.
