Data shows German trade with Iran increased in 2010

BERLIN – Despite new rounds of UN and EU sanctions in 2010, German-Iranian export and import trade showed increases last year, according to an examination of new German government trade statistics last week by The Jerusalem Post.

 Roger Bückert, the head of the group pro-Israel Initiative “Never Again,” wrote the Post by e-mail on Friday that he suspected an increase in German- Iranian trade in 2010.
“As long as relevant economic and societal associations such as the German chamber of commerce supply know-how at workshops, like the recent example in Bayreuth, regarding how one can knowingly circumvent international sanctions against Iran – and do not experience any ostracism or discouragement from the side of politicians and society, the trend will, unfortunately, continue...
despite political lip service.”
