Visiting Head of Foreign Policy Commission of German Parliament Ruprech Polenz conferred on Tuesday with Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on issues of mutual interests.
At the meeting, Mottaki said the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) should return Iran's nuclear dossier to IAEA.
Mottaki said Iran has adopted a transparent approach to its nuclear case and remained committed to its obligations towards the IAEA.
The Iranian nation is rational and believes in dialogue to resolve issues based on justice, Mottaki said, adding that Iran's nuclear case has remained in the UNSC in vain.
"We have proved that imposition of economic sanctions will have no effects on our country and Iran is determined to get its legitimate rights under any circumstance," he said.
Referring to deeply rooted ties between Iran and Germany, Mottaki said Iran never hesitates to broaden mutual, regional and international cooperation with Germany but "We are to consider our general relations with Europe and Germany in particular with utmost care."
Iran is willing to broaden mutual, regional and international cooperation with Germany, Mottaki said, adding that Iran is now making new plans for new round of economic cooperation with its main partners.
Europe has always benefited from its ties with Iran, he said, adding that this trend should continue in the future.
Mottaki also extended an invitation letter to his German counterpart inviting him to pay an official visit to Iran.
The Germany envoy, for his part, said expansion of cooperation between Iran and IAEA and removal of remaining issues would leave positive impacts on their relations.
"We believe that the current level of cooperation between Iran, EU and Germany should be further bolstered, therefor German companies can be consider as reliable economic partners mainly in the energy sector in Iran," he said.
