German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that his country would support further sanctions against Iran and that it was pushing to convene a special session of the UN Human Rights Council in response to Iran's crackdown on protestors. Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian had threatened his German counterpart Annalena Baerbock with an "appropriate and decisive" response if Germany supported more sanctions.
