German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the agreement provides a “realistic chance of overcoming one of the most difficult international conflicts through diplomatic means” and brings much closer the goal of preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Germany is a party in the negotiations and its main business lobby is anticipating a surge in exports to Iran as economic sanctions lift.
