Min: Continued cooperation with Germany depending on former pacts

Tehran,Iran's Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian says continued cooperation with Germany will depend on implementation of former agreements.

Suitable grounds are available for cooperation between Iran and Germany in water and energy sectors, but continuation of the trend will depend on receiving positive signals on implementation of formerly reached agreements,' said Ardakanian in a meeting with German Ambassador to Tehran Michael Klor-Berchtold in Tehran on Tuesday.

Ardakanian said the agreements already reached with German ministry of environment, economy and energy concern such fields as power plant turbine project financing.

On German ambassador's invitation to attend Munchen International Water and Sewage Fair, he said the visit will take place if official meetings are held to follow up former accords.

Ardakanian said besides issues related to relations between ministries of the two countries, one should wait and see reaction and conduct of Europe on the JCPOA and the May 12 decision of the US President on this issue.

'We do assess current issues in the sector positively, but are ready for any result.'
