According to the report, Steinmeier said the agreement would help contribute to security in the Middle East, Arutz Sheva reports.
“This is a responsible deal and Israel should also take a closer look at it and not criticize the agreement in a very coarse way,” he was quoted as having told German broadcaster ARD.
Steinmeier refuted Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s argument against the agreement, saying the basis for the agreement was transparency and the ability to monitor Iran’s compliance.
“In the agreement, Iran has to commit to these monitoring possibilities. And we will make sure that the monitoring possibilities are also observed after this deal,” he said, according to Reuters.
