"For us, the outcome of the elections (in the US) was a surprise… Now we hope that not all of what was said, will be implemented," Gernot Erler, a member of Bundestag’s foreign affairs committee, said.
Gernot said Berlin had serious concerns about Trump walking out of the six-party agreement with Tehran to roll back its nuclear research in exchange for sanctions easing.
"For 12 years we had been negotiating [the] nuclear deal with Iran. Now we ask ourselves will the US walk out [of] this deal or not," Erler said in Moscow during a meeting with his Russian counterpart, Konstantin Kosachev.
During his election campaign, the Republican called the historic pact with Iran a disaster. He also used to criticize warnings about global warming, saying this was a Chinese hoax, and speculated about ending US participation in the Paris climate deal on carbon emissions.
