Germany and France have initiated new sanctions against Iran over its alleged violent crackdown on women's protests, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said at a press conference in Berlin on Friday.

According to her, she will continue to be the voice of these people who came out to protest in Iran. The FM added that Iran's ambassador to Berlin has already been called to the carpet twice in connection with the situation surrounding the protests.
