German Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere has warned Israel against a strike on Iran, describing military action as an ‘unwise’ move.
Speaking at the Israel-Europe Dialogue conference in Berlin on Tuesday, De Maiziere warned Israel against the massive repercussions of such an attack, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“It’s not only a question of what will happen the day after [an attack on Iran] in Tel Aviv; it’s a question of what will happen elsewhere in the world,” he said.
He added that an attack against Iran will also lead to the emergence of new alliances with Iran.
The United States, Israel and some of their allies have accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program with the Israeli regime repeatedly threatening Tehran with a military strike.
Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it is entitled to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
The Tel Aviv regime has recently stepped up its aggressive rhetoric against Iran with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak spearheading the belligerent campaign.
Iranian officials have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.
