Mogherini says EU committed to Iran deal despite US pullout

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini says the EU is determined to make sure the Iran nuclear agreement is respected despite US President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out.

Mogherini says Friday that “our determination is to keep this agreement in place. Obviously we need the only country that can unilaterally destroy this agreement to stay committed, which is Iran.”

Mogherini says she has been reassured about Iran’s intentions by the declarations of President Hassan Rouhani.

She adds that the US cannot undo the agreement by pulling out, saying: “This deal is not a bilateral treaty. It’s a UN Security Council Resolution and it belongs to the entire world.”

Mogherini will chair talks between the British, French, German and Iranian foreign ministers in Brussels on Tuesday.
