Mogherini: ‘US should comply with Iran nuclear deal’

Speaking at a Tuesday news conference in Washington, EU’s Federica Mogherini said she had underlined the importance of the landmark nuclear deal in meetings with administration officials and lawmakers in Washington this week.

Mogherini expressed hope that the US would fulfill its obligations under the deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of action (JCPOA), saying, “We want to see the United States continue its implementation in the future.”

“The EU has a security interest in keeping the deal working,” she added.

Iranian media PressTv reported.

Calling it a “delicate moment,” as work on the legislation is ongoing, Mogherini said that she received assurances from lawmakers that the goal is to remain compliant with the deal.
“What I discussed with people on the Hill is the need for us to have the United States compliant with the deal and I got reassurances from their side, different sides on the Hill, that this is exactly the spirit in which they’re working, to keep the United States compliant with the deal,” Mogherini said.
