Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani called out the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz's interventionist, provocative and undiplomatic stance toward the Islamic Republic.

Considering the German Chancellor's recent stance towards Iran to be interventionist, provocative and undiplomatic, Kanaani said, "Unfortunately, some human rights claimants have made human rights a tool for political games by forgetting their dark record against the honorable and resistant people of Iran during their blind and inhumane support for the Saddam regime, backing the cruel sanctions imposed on Iran following the withdrawal of the US from the JCPOA, as well as keeping silence against the terrorist actions of Daesh, the last of which was the terrorist attack on the Holy Shrine of Shah Cheragh".

"The will of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the fundamental principles of human rights, including human dignity, confronting force and defending the oppressed, has always been based on the principle of responsibility. This is while Germany which is running away from its international responsibility to respect the sovereignty of countries by giving shelter to terrorist and separatist groups of the Islamic Republic of Iran and adopting a selective and dual approach against the crime of the Zionist child-killing regime in all parts of the world, including Palestine, presents itself as a defender of human rights," he added.

Stressing that the destruction of historical ties has long-term consequences, the spokesman said that the human rights demands of the Islamic Republic of Iran from the German authorities are a long list. Therefore, it is Germany that should responsibly clarify the past.

Kanaani once again advised the German authorities to restore rationality to the atmosphere of relations and prevent further confusion of relations, saying that building mutual respect and interests is the only way to sustainable cooperation.
