Zarif calls talks with EU “good and constructive”


Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called his talks with EU over salvaging the nuclear agreement as “good and constructive”.

He made the remarks following a meeting with his French, British and German counterparts as well as the EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini in Brussels.

“We had a good and constructive meeting. Europeans committed to do their best to implement the terms of agreements reached during the meeting. We have started working to reach the guarantees. Remaining sides to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) should ensure Tehran’s interests will be protected,” Mr. Zarif said.

“We are on the right track ... a lot will depend on what we can do in next few weeks,” he added.

“Constructive meeting with EU High Rep & E3 ministers in Brussels, following successful Beijing & Moscow visits. Positive start with solid political commitments. All agreed that much remains to be done in coming weeks to practically guarantee economic benefits for Iranian people,” he tweeted after the meeting.

Zarif also said that US’ sanctions against the governor of Iran's central bank Valiollah Seif were illegal.
