German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called on Monday for salvaging the 2015 nuclear pact between Iran and world powers which he said was in Tehran's interest.

Addressing the UN. sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, he noted the Biden's administration's stated readiness to rejoin the pact, adding: 'it is is in Iran's best interest to change course now, before the agreement is damaged beyond repair.'

Maas said that Germany expected ' full compliance, full transparency and full cooperation ' from Iran with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), whose chief Rafael Grossi returned on Sunday from a trip to Tehran.
