German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel says a nuclear deal with Iran has helped lower the risk of a major conflict in the Mideast and that Germany will do whatever is possible to hold all parties to it.

After talks in Berlin with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Gabriel told reporters Tuesday that the deal was "a great sign of hope" for the region and had opened a "historic window" for rekindling relations with Tehran.

He says: "Our clear position is we stand by this agreement."

U.S. President Donald Trump has condemned the agreement.

Gabriel did not mention any other countries in his comments.

Zarif said he was "very happy to hear Germany takes it seriously."
