NCRI - German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said his country was concerned about the Iranian regime's role in the region and noted that Berlin and Riyadh have a similar position on the problematic role played by Iran's regime in the region and the role of Hezbollah, according to Al Arabiya English.

In an interview with the Pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper published on Wednesday, Gabriel emphasized that Germany and Saudi Arabia were on the same page when it comes to the need to counter the Iranian regime’s political role in the region.

“We are very concerned about Iran’s external political role in the region. I said so clearly during my visit to Washington a while ago. We want to confront the problem of the Iranian role in the region in partnership with the Americans, without harming the nuclear agreement. In this context, we have clearly expressed our condemnation of Iran’s missile tests, as they are in no way consistent with Security Council Resolution 2231,” he told the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat.
