Mogherini: EU continues to supports JCPOA as much as it can
The European Union will continue to support the Iran nuclear deal as much as it can with all our instruments and all our political will, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said.
She stressed that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) helps to avoid escalation in the region, according to the statement posted on the EEAS website.
"We continue to fully support the nuclear deal with Iran and its full implementation. We will have also today in the margins of the Foreign Affairs Council a meeting between myself and the Foreign Ministers of France, Germany and the UK to discuss how to best continue to support the full implementation of the nuclear deal with Iran that for us remains a key pillar of security in our region," Mogherini clarified.
She noted that the EU will continue to support it as much as it can. "This is very well known, both in Washington and in Tehran," she noted.
According the EU foreign policy chief, they have very serious differences and divergences with Iran, but dialogue is the best way to address differences and avoid escalation in the region.
