German Foreign Minister Haikou Mas will meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Monday as part of intensive European efforts to maintain Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers and defuse tensions between the United States and the Islamic Republic, a German diplomatic source said..

There has been cautious improvement in relations between Tehran and Washington when Iran signed an agreement in 2015 with six major powers imposing restrictions on its nuclear activities. But hostility has returned since President Trump withdrew from the agreement in 2018 and re-imposed comprehensive sanctions on Iran.

The signatories of Western Europe, including Germany, want to try to maintain the nuclear deal, even though they share Trump’s concern over Iran’s ballistic missile program and its role in conflicts in the Middle East.

Germany, France and Britain say the nuclear deal is still the best way to curb Iran’s enrichment of uranium, a possible way to develop nuclear weapons, and seek an agreement with Iran on other security issues in the future..

“I can confirm that the (German) foreign minister will meet with President Rouhani on Monday,” the diplomatic source said, without giving further details.
