JCPOA should be implemented fully by all parties: Mogherini


Tehran (ISNA) - EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini noted that the European Union intended to achieve the full implementation of the agreement on Iran by all parties concerned, sputnik reported.

"We will ensure that the engagement with Iran will continue and that the deal will be implemented in all its parts by all. This means the nuclear part, this means also all the rest – like the lifting of sanctions, as you know, and gradual re-engagement in all sectors," Mogherini said at a joint press conference with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov.

She noted that there was an ongoing review of the policy toward Iran in the United States.

"We respect it but we have also the duty to make it clear — the nuclear deal does not belong to one country, it belongs to the international community, to the United Nations system, it was endorsed by the UN Security Council with a resolution, and I think we share responsibility to make sure that this continues to be implemented fully by all," Mogherini stressed.

Signed in 2015, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has been in effect since January 2016.

“We have security and economic interests in pursuing our engagement with Iran. Cooperation with Iran in trade and investment fields has doubled and it will continue,” Mogherini said.
