Berlin, Germany (CNN) — German Foreign Minister Analina Baerbock has described reports that hundreds of schoolgirls across Iran have been poisoned in recent months as “shocking” and called for a full investigation.
“The reports of the poisoning of schoolgirls in Iran are shocking,” Birbock said on Twitter. “Girls should be able to go to school without fear – whether in Tehran or Ardabil – this is nothing less than their human right,” she added. “All cases must be fully investigated,” Burbuck stressed.
German Foreign Minister Christopher Berger, a spokesman for German Foreign Minister Christopher Berger, said during a press conference on Friday that the United Nations supported Birbock’s call, which urges a full and transparent investigation into the alleged poisoning of hundreds of schoolgirls in Iran.
“We wish a speedy recovery to all those who were injured, and an end to these incidents,” German deputy government spokesman Wolfgang Buechner said during the same press conference.
Relations between Germany and Iran have been particularly strained, following the wave of Iranian protests that erupted after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody in September last year.
Germany has strongly criticized the Iranian government for its brutal suppression of the protests and the execution of anti-government demonstrators.
Last Wednesday, Tehran expelled two diplomats from Germany, in response to a similar measure taken by Berlin in February, following the death sentence against German-Iranian citizen Jamshid Sharhad in Iran.
