"The Iranian nuclear programme will now for many years be subjected to strict technical restrictions and close monitoring," said Steinmeier, whose country was among the six world powers that negotiated the landmark deal with Tehran.
The diplomatic victory allows for the hope that "we may yet succeed in defusing other urgent crises and conflicts in the region, especially regarding the civil war in Syria," he said in a statement.
"It won't happen overnight and it won't be easy, but neither were the nuclear negotiations with Iran."
