Podcast "important today": CDU foreign expert Norbert Röttgen demands: The regime in Iran must be on the EU terror list

At the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva last week, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock spoke out in favor of holding those responsible for the violence against demonstrators in Iran accountable. And indeed, the UN Council voted in favor of the resolution. First steps and still these are too hesitant, says the CDU external expert Norbert Röttgen. In the 413th episode of the "Today important" podcast, Röttgen analyzes why the traffic light coalition is acting like this: "The focus in German diplomacy on the core of Iran policy, namely the JCPoA, the nuclear agreement. That was a complete focus since years and I think it was the fear of the diplomats, the officials in the Foreign Office and also those in the Chancellery, who have been familiar with the subject for years and have worked on it, if there is an escalation now, in which we are involved, than Germany, then this nuclear agreement will fail and we don't want that. I think that's a misanalysis."

Norbert Röttgen goes on to say in an interview with "Today important" host Michel Abdollahi: "High-ranking diplomats also feed a foreign minister who, I think, has not been familiar with the Iran issue for so long, who is under an incredible deadline pressure anyway, who needs to travel, who needs to talk, has few resources. In the little time of accessibility, she is massively fed and steered rather than steered." The CDU politician also advocates that the events in Iran should be more prominent on the agenda than they have been up to now: "It's not enough to say something every two weeks. People there are killed, tortured and raped every day. The public needs everyone day - and she has to stay on the ball much harder, the Foreign Minister above all. And she also has to make it clear that we are doing everything we can to ensure that there are finally appropriate consequences."

When it comes to "important today", Norbert Röttgen formulates a very clear goal: "We must finally take action now, to the regime. And the Federal Foreign Minister must raise the demand and pursue it in the EU, the Revolutionary Guards as the power-political core, as the core of the group, They benefit from the unjust regime, they have to be on the EU terror list."
