German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has told Iran’s top diplomat Hossein Amir Abdollahian that his country is ready to take all necessary measures to send BionTech’s Covid vaccine to Iran.

The German foreign minister also called for the Vienna talks over the Iran nuclear deal to resume as soon as possible. He said Berlin is ready to expand relations with Iran in all areas.

In the telephone conversation, Amir Abdollahian called on Germany to finalize talks over BionTech.

Amir Abdollahian blasted the US hypocrisy, saying Washington has hampered imports of vital and medical supplies to Iran through sanctions.

He also spoke of US President Joe Biden recent threat against Iran, saying the US officials must mind their manners while talking to Iran. Amir Abdollahian added that American officials virtually have no sound understanding of the region and Iran, most particularly the Iranian people. He said the way the US speaks to Iran will not only fail to help resolve problems but it also complicates the situation.

He noted that Iran agrees to the Vienna talks in principle but it accepts negotiations that will result in removing all sanctions on the country and fulfilling the rights of the Iranian people.

He also urged the group of countries known as the European Troika to change course and begin abiding by their obligations under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

The Iranian foreign minister said Tehran welcomes expanding ties with Germany in all fields.
