TEHRAN – Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Chairman Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh has criticized Germany for banning Iran’s Mahan Air, saying Tehran expects the German government to reconsider its decision.

Falahatpisheh made the remarks in a meeting with Philipp Ackermann, Director General of Germany’s Foreign Ministry, Tasnim reported on Tuesday.

“The two countries’ friendship has a long history (and) because of this long history, it is necessary to make efforts to improve these ties and strengthen Iran-Germany relations at different levels,” he suggested.

The lawmaker further said the move to ban Mahan Air is in contradiction with the friendly atmosphere between the two sides.
