Israeli sources reported that Germany decided to void a deal signed between a German company and Iran to rebuild Bandar Abbas Iranian Port. The deal was canceled due to Israeli pressure and campaigning against it.
The sources added that Israel is currently trying to void a natural gas deal between Germany and Iran. Israeli Yedioth Aharonoth reported that Israeli refrained from revealing its secret activities aimed at reducing the frequency of trade between Germany and Iran.
Israel is attempting to convince Germany to pressure its companies into refraining from exporting equipment or advanced technology to Iran, especially in the fields of natural gas and fuel.
Trade deals between Germany and Iran witnessed a 9% reduction in 2009, but some experts have said that this is not an accurate indicator, as many contracts are signed through mediators.
