After a 90-minute meeting between Iran and the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany and the EU foreign policy chief, Mogherini said that the talks were aimed at developing concrete steps to support the Iran Nuclear Deal.
The EU foreign affairs chief also said that Brussels and Tehran had begun expert discussions in various areas, including energy, finance and transportation cooperation, after the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
"We undertook in particular the launch of experts discussions, which as I said, have already started today with Iran, addressing the following issues with a view to arriving at practical solutions within the next few weeks. First, maintaining and deepening economic relations with Iran; second, the continued sale of Iran's oil, gas, condensate, petroleum products, and petrochemicals, and related transfers. Three, effective banking, transactions with Iran; four, continued sea, land, air, and rail transportation relations with Iran," Mogherini said after her meeting with the foreign ministers of Iran, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom dedicated to the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal.
Earlier, Donald Trump pulled out from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which is commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal. The US President also pledged to reinstate the sanctions against Iran, which were lifted as part of the agreement.
