German banks poised to finance projects in Iran

Germany's foreign minister says the crisis over Gulf Arab state's dispute with Qatar will only get worse the longer it lasts, and appeals on all sides to engage in direct dialogue.

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. The US Supreme Court on Monday partially reinstated the travel ban restricting citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Foreign Minister Zarif is scheduled to meet his Italian counterpart Angelino Alfano and other senior officials during the official visit, IRNA reported.

Also at the meeting, Germany's Hermes expressed readiness to take out insurance against new investment projects in Iran, especially in energy and power sectors.

In a speech in the German capital, Zarif said the countries who blamed Iran or Qatar for terrorism were trying to avoid taking responsibility for their own failures in addressing the demands of their own people.

But Zarif said the development would force terrorists to do more harm.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Wednesday that the court order demonstrates the USA administration's will to discriminate against Muslims and treat them unfairly, contrary to the American statesmen's claims.
