Germany is ready to develop energy ties with Iran by focusing on water and solar collaboration, the European country’s ambassador to Iran said on Tuesday.
“Germany’s investments in the solar power plant projects in Kerman and Hamedan indicate the goodwill of the country for raising energy ties with Iran,” IRNA quoted Michael Klor-Berchtold as saying during his meeting with Iranian Energy Minster Reza Ardakanian in Tehran.
About the impact of US President Donald Trump's decision due on May 12 about remaining in or leaving Iran nuclear deal, the ambassador said, “The US president’s decision on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action will be Washington’s and not the decision of Europe.”
Klor-Berchtold stressed that Berlin has the political will to expand cooperation with Iran even if the America’s decision regarding Iran is not desirable.  
Ardakanian said the two countries can increase cooperation in the fields of energy, such as water and solar power, which depends on receiving positive signs from Germany for the implementation of past agreements.
