The US strike in Iraq that killed Iran Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani was a reaction to «military provocations» committed by the Islamic Republic, a German government spokeswoman said in Berlin on Friday.
«The American action is a reaction to a whole series of military provocations for which Iran bears responsibility,» Ulrike Demmer said during the weekly press conference.
«We are in a... Еще dangerous escalation point. Now we have to contribute to a de-escalation with prudence and restraint,» she added.
Demmer also warned Turkey against deploying troops to Libya. On Thursday, Turkish MPs approved a bill allowing the government to send military support for Libya's UN-backed government.
