BERLIN – An NGO in the German capital sharply criticized a delegation of lawmakers for their current trip to Iran, which includes meetings with a Holocaust denier and an official involved in the kidnapping of American diplomatic personnel in 1979.

“In the face of the current wave of executions in Iran, speaking about ‘efforts to open up Iranian society’ is brazen. It is a scandal that two weeks after Islamist attacks in Paris, a high-ranking delegation of German parliamentarians is having meetings with terrorists and Holocaust deniers in Iran,” Stop the Bomb spokeswoman Ulrike Becker said on Tuesday.

Stop the Bomb is a European-wide organization that seeks to stop Iran’s drive to become a nuclear-armed power, and promotes human rights in the Islamic Republic.
