Senior diplomats from Iran and Germany sat down for talks on the 2015 nuclear deal and a European-proposed financial mechanism for evading the US sanctions against Iran, known as the Special Purpose Vehicle. 
Director of the Political Directorate-General of Germany’s Federal Foreign Office Antje Leendertse held a meeting with Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi during her visit to Tehran on Wednesday, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The two diplomats discussed a range of bilateral and international issues, including the latest status of the implementation of the nuclear deal.
They underlined the need to implement anti-sanctions solutions, particularly the SPV, to help European firms continue trade transactions with Iran without the fear of US sanctions.
The German official said European countries are aware of the importance and urgency of the matter and are trying to finalize the mechanisms in the next few days in consultation with the Iranian side.
Araqchi expressed Iran’s strong objection to the arrest of a diplomat at the Iranian Embassy in Vienna, Austria, by the German police and his extradition to Belgium over his alleged role in a foiled plot to bomb a gathering of the Mujahedin-e Khalq terror group in Paris.
