Foreign Minister Steinmeier invites Iran’s Rouhani to Germany
Germany has its eyes on boosting trade and investment with Iran following the lifting of sanctions. Iran’s cooperation is also critical for resolving the conflict in Syria.
Foreign Minister Frank-Walker Steinmeier in Tehran on Wednesday encouraged Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to visit Germany during his next visit to Europe as the two nations seek to strengthen cooperation.
Steinmeier said he told the Iranian president “to keep Germany in mind as a destination on his next trip to Europe.”
The curtain around the Islamic Republic’s economic and political isolation lifted following the implementation of a nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers in January.
