    Tehran hopes that broader relations with Germany will bring the country closer with Europe, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said at the meeting with German Economy and Energy Minister Sigmar Gabriel.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Germany's delegation, consisting of some 60 members, including representatives of the biggest German companies, is the first high-ranking European delegation to visit Iran after a conclusion of the international talks on Iran's nuclear program.

    "We hope that the German delegation plays its positive role in the expansion of Iran’s ties with Europe as it did so during negotiations [between Iran and the P5+1 group]", Rouhani said Monday as quoted by Iran's Press TV.

    The president added that enhancing of the economic and trade ties between Iran and the international negotiators would ensure the implementation of the nuclear deal.

    On Monday, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to adopt UN Resolution 2231 in support of the deal reached last week by Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising China, France, Russia, the United States, Britain and Germany.

    The P5+1 international negotiators have been attempting to reach a comprehensive agreement with Iran that would insure the peaceful nature of the country's nuclear program since November 2013, when an interim was signed.

    On July 14, a final deal was struck in the Austrian capital of Vienna after over two weeks of continuous talks and multiple extensions of self-imposed deadlines.

    According to the final text of the nuclear agreement, Iran will under no circumstances seek to develop or acquire a nuclear weapon and, in exchange, will receive sanctions relief.
