"As a first step, we will coordinate with the E3 and the other EU Member States to jointly assess the statement and its implication," the Spokesperson on the Iran Nuclear Deal said in a statement on Friday.
The EU official stressed that the 28-nation union remains committed to the "continued full and effective implementation" of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
The JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) was signed in 2015 by Iran and the 5+1 group, six world powers – China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany.
Earlier, a spokeswoman for the German Foreign Ministry announced that Berlin would consult EU partners on a common stance toward the US decision to temporarily waive sanctions.
"We have noted today’s US announcement on the Iranian JCPOA nuclear deal," the spokeswoman said in a statement. "We are going to consult with our European partners next to discuss a common approach."
She said the German government would continue to advocate the full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a 2015 pact between Tehran and six world powers that curbed Iran’s nuclear research in return for sanctions relief.
