    In recent years, there has been an increase in attacks...

    In recent years, there has been an increase in attacks against our citizens, especially those living in Germany. During meetings held on every occasion with the relevant authorities of the country, the delegation stated our expectation that the investigations into the attacks in question would be finalized, the investigation files would not be closed without discovering the perpetrator/cause, the perpetrators of deliberate acts would be arrested and punished and necessary measures would be taken to prevent the repetition of similar acts.

    Can please check my translation attempt above to see if it needs improvement?

    You can also remove all the "woulds" highlighted in orange.

    […] the delegation stated our expectation that […] necessary measures would be taken to prevent the repetition of similar acts

    Thank you very much for your edits, teechar, but I don’t understand why you removed the would be above. Can you elaborate on that?

    It's unnecessary.
