Does a multiple-entry Schengen visa allow visiting other Schengen countries later, without going via the issuing country?

I live in UK, and have obtained a 3 month valid Multiple Entry Schengen Visa from German Embassy. The Visa says maximum stay of 30 days during the 3 month validity. I made my first trip to Germany-Spain (1 week duration). Now, can I visit other Schengen countries (France / Czech Republic) without visiting Germany (and not exceeding the 30 day maximum stay period of course)?

I am not able to find a direct answer to this question on the embassy page. Any help is appreciated.

    Hi, welcome to Travel SE! Have a look at this question: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/9646/… I'm not 100% sure, but looks like it's essentially the same as what you asked.

    Anyway, the answer is yes, with your multiple-entry visa you can visit other Schengen countries directly, without visiting Germany.
