EU continues to support Iran nuclear deal
The EU has never wavered in its support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as it wholeheartedly believes that the nuclear deal is a good agreement that is working, says Nathalie Tocci, an aide to the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
In an interview with Iranian Tasnim news agency on Saturday, Tocci said the JCPOA is an agreement which proves that multilateralism, diplomacy, and international law, in line with the EU's fundamental principles of foreign policy, are the only recipes for delivering international peace and security.
Tocci said the US withdrawal from the deal represents a violation of an international agreement enshrined in international law through a UN Security Council resolution. She stressed that Iran has so far remained in compliance with the terms of the JCPOA as testified by 11 rounds of inspections of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Tocci added that the re-imposition of sanctions as a political move aimed at bringing Iran to the negotiating table is unreasonable.
