Germany's Vice Chancellor and Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Sigmar Gabriel will visit Iran Oct.2.
Before, Gabriel’s visit to Iran was scheduled for June, but was later postponed due to his health issues.
Germany was one of Iran's biggest trade partners before the Islamic Republic got hit with sanctions. Last month, a delegation of 150 German officials and businessmen attended a joint economic forum with Iranian counterparts in Tehran.
During Gabriel’s visit to Tehran, he would discuss banking, investment and cooperation issues with Iran’s private sector representatives.
Omid Baraghi, head of Iran-Germany Chamber of Commerce, said Sept. 28 Iranian banks have not been able to establish transactions with German banks, despite that sanctions onIran have been eliminated 9 months ago.
