The IYPT fully supports the initiatives and statements of our partner organizations, the European Physical Society and the International Union for Pure and Applied Physics towards the recent chain of violence and injustice in Iran. We deeply condemn ongoing human rights violations in Iran, which have no place in a civilized community and do directly affect our local partners. The IYPT always was and will remain the voice of those, who suffer from unprovoked aggression and oppression.

Martin Plesch, the IYPT President
