Berlin, Nov 8, IRNA - A group of female parliamentarians from Iran continued their high-level political talks in Berlin on Wednesday, meeting with German Deputy Justice Minister Lutz Diwell.
Briefing the Iranian side on the German judicial system, the official expressed his country's interest in exchanging judicial experts and officials in the area of juvenile rights and crimes.
Meanwhile, the head of the Iranian delegation, Fatemeh Alia reiterated that Iran's present judicial system was based on Islamic teachings and justice.
She lambasted reports by certain segments of the international media about heavy judicial verdicts against young adults, branding them baseless and fraud.
Alia hailed Germany's anti-Iraq war stance, saying Berlin's position on the US military aggression could be interpreted as support for the rights of Iraqi civilians, especially women and children.
In other related news, another member of the Iranian parliamentary delegation, Eshrat Shayegh, called for tougher court verdicts against the producers and distributors of narcotics.
The Iranian MPs met earlier with members of the German-Iranian parliamentary friendship group.
Talks dwelt on boosting cooperation in the sphere of fighting drug trade.
The Iranian female lawmakers also criticized a number of their German counterparts for having links with counter-revolutionary terrorist groups like the MKO grouplet and Pejak.
