German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Tehran on Monday as part of European efforts to salvage the historic JCPOA nuclear pact and defuse rising US-Iranian tension.
Mass says a European financial system, designed to avoid US sanctions, should be up and running soon.
The EU, along with the rest of the signatories to the 2015 agreement, are standing by it, after the US withdrew last year.
