Deputy Foreign Minister Majid Takht-Ravanchi said Tehran expects P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) to fulfill their obligations under the nuclear deal, particularly their commitments concerning financial and banking affairs.

The senior diplomat made the statement in a meeting with Markus Ederer, secretary of state at the German Foreign Ministry, in Tehran on Tuesday, Press TV reported. Takht-Ravanchi also reaffirmed Iran’s commitment to its obligations under the nuclear agreement.

The German official said his country gives priority to broader economic cooperation with Iran.

In a separate meeting with Ederer on the same day, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hailed Germany’s stance on current realities in the Middle East, saying Berlin plays a pivotal role in regional and international developments.

“Contrary to certain European and western players, Germany does not hold a negative view about the regional realities. Such a view is an important factor for extra-regional players that seek peaceful solutions to solve regional crises,” he said.
