German Foreign Minister Fank-Walter Steinmeier on Tuesday evening during a press conference in Tehran praised the Iranian nuclear deal that was implemented in mid-January, adding that both nations seek to strengthen bilateral relations.

"I am confident the [nuclear deal] made the world and region safer, and for the years to come narrowed prospects of nuclearization of the region," Iran's state-backed Press TV quoted the German diplomat as saying.

During Steinmeir's second visit in three months to the Islamic Republic, he met with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif. He was also due to meet Wednesday with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani. 

In his remarks to the press, Steinmeir also indicated that the nuclear accord could help foster a political solution to subdue rampant bloodshed in the Middle East, pointedly the Syrian conflict.
