Sources: German minister to visit Iran on Sunday after nuclear deal

German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel plans to fly to Iran on Sunday, industry and coalition sources told Reuters, to quickly tap the new trading opportunities from this week’s historic nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers. Gabriel, who is also vice chancellor and leader of the Social Democrats (SPD) who share power with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives, plans to take a small delegation on a three day visit, said the sources. A spokeswoman for the ministry said a visit to Iran was being considered but she declined to say when it would happen.
