Germany said Monday there was an "urgent" need to find a solution over the Iranian nuclear programme, calling for continued dialogue with President-elect Hassan Rowhani, a moderate cleric.
"A solution to this issue is urgent," foreign ministry spokesman Andreas Peschke told reporters.
"From our perspective, we must continue the dialogue," he said. "Iran of course has a right to a peaceful nuclear programme, but also the duty to meet all international obligations."
