Germany Can't Protect Its Companies Doing Business in Iran - Foreign Minister

Iranian nuclear negotiator and deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi.

Earlier this week, the pro-Iranian Al-Quds forces deployed in Syria launched no less than 20 missiles and other projectiles at the advanced positions of Israeli Army units on the Golan Heights. Their concerns seem to be well-founded, as Germany's foreign minister has said it will be hard to protect them.

"The Iran deal is not only about sanctions but more about regional stability and non-proliferation of the mass destruction weapons", Lavrov added.

USA unilateral pullout from the nuclear deal and how to continue the agreement after U.S. exit were discussed by Iranian and Russian diplomats.

Tehran has yet to officially react to the strikes.

Iran is ready to "fulfill all its obligations" under the nuclear deal, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said after meeting with his counterpart in Tehran, according to comments carried by state media.

President Trump announced Tuesday that the United States will withdraw from the Obama era agreement, calling the deal "defective at its core" and that "the Iranian regime has funded its long reign of chaos and terror by plundering the wealth of its own people".

"The Zionist regime's repeated attacks on Syrian soil under self-proclaimed, baseless pretexts amount to a blatant violation of Syria's sovereignty and goes against all global conventions", the official said. "It's clear that for that we have to maintain economic incentives, and that would not be easy after the USA decision" he said.

"It is very important to save the adherence to this agreement and today we spoke about it", Maas said.

Apart from regular issues like combating narco-terrorism and organised crime, the two sides discussed the implications of the impending USA sanctions on Russian Federation and Iran, which could impact India's pending arms purchases as well as its energy security.
