In the face of tensions between the United States and Iran, Germany is seeking mediation, according to a report in the German local newspaper. The political director of the Foreign Office, Jens Plotner, will visit Tehran on Thursday, the newspaper reported.

Plotner will meet with Vice Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, one of the negotiators of the 2015 closed nuclear deal.

The situation in the Persian Gulf and in the region was “extremely serious”.  There is a “real danger of escalation, perhaps also due to misunderstandings or an incident”. In this situation, “dialogue is of great importance”, newspaper quoted foreign office.

At the center of Plotner’s trip to Iran was the preservation of the nuclear agreement, according to “SZ”, it was said to continue from the Foreign Office. After Tehran’s announcement that it would partially suspend its obligations under the agreement, there was a window of opportunity for diplomacy to persuade and persuade Iran to comply with all provisions.

The United States had terminated the agreement a year ago. On the anniversary of the resignation of President Donald Trump, Tehran had announced that Iran would no longer comply with individual provisions of the agreement. Tehran also announced that it would take further action if co-signatories Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China did not meet it within 60 days.

Referring to an unspecified “threat” by Iran, the US government had moved an aircraft carrier, a bomber squadron and an anti-aircraft battery into the Gulf region in early May. It also tightened the sanctions imposed on Iran.
