Source: The Left “Federal Government and EU must reject a military presence in the Strait of Hormuz. The strait off the coast of Iran should not be further militarized. The US military mission ‘Sentinel’ increases the risk of armed incidents, “explains Sevim Dagdelen, vice-chair and disarmament spokeswoman for the DIE LINKE group. Dagdelen continued: “Instead of sending warships off the coast of Iran, like US President Donald Trump and Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Heiko Maas must now work hard to implement the international nuclear agreement with Iran. The Federal Government, together with the EU, Russia and China, is responsible for fulfilling the obligations of the international nuclear agreement and for maintaining trade with Iran against the US sanctions regime. Only in this way can a further escalation of the conflict be avoided, for which US President Donald Trump is primarily responsible for the unilateral termination of the nuclear agreement in May 2018. DIE LINKE rejects German participation in the US-led Sentinel military mission as well as an EU Observer mission, which in the end amounts to supporting Trump. It is not the task of the Bundeswehr to enforce economic interests around the world and to render Washington blind allegiance. “
