Ger­many warns de­fense firms on aid­ing Tehran’s mis­siles

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD - — Carlo Munoz

Iran is so­lic­it­ing Ger­man de­fense firms to sup­port its bal­lis­tic mis­sile pro­gram in an at­tempt to side­step in­ter­na­tional sanc­tions de­signed to pre­vent it from ob­tain­ing such weaponry, the Ger­man govern­ment warned Thurs­day.

Ger­man in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cials have put the coun­try’s weapons mak­ers on no­tice re­gard­ing pos­si­ble sup­port for the mis­sile pro­gram. In the past, Iran has been able to skirt in­ter­na­tional sanc­tions by procur­ing parts and sup­plies for its bal­lis­tic mis­sile pro­gram via front com­pa­nies in Turkey, the United Arab Emi­rates and China, among oth­ers.
