Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman announced that German foreign minister Heiko Maas will arrive in Tehran on Monday.

Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said, "The German Foreign Minister will meet with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif and President Hassan Rouhani, during his one-day visit to Iran.

The Spokesman said bilateral relations between Iran and Germany, the most important regional and international issues and the latest developments on Iran’s nuclear deal, are among the topics to be discussions during this trip to Iran.

As Reuters reported German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas will visit Iran as part of a three-country Middle East tour next week, during which he will explore options for preserving a fraying nuclear non-proliferation pact, a German foreign ministry spokeswoman said.

The trip, timed to coincide with the end of the Muslim festival of Ramadan, will take Maas to Jordan, the United Arab Emirates as well as Tehran, Maria Adebahr told a regular news conference on Thursday.

She added that the trip had been agreed and coordinated with Britain and France, both of which support the non-proliferation deal they signed with Iran, and had also been discussed with Mike Pompeo, chief diplomat of the United States, which has repudiated the agreement.
