FM Zarif, EU Commissioner for Energy meet in Tehran

دیدار کمیسیونر انرژی اتحادیه اروپا با وزیر خارجه

Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has held talks with EU Commissioner for Energy and Climate Miguel Arias Canete in Tehran.

During the Sunday talks, the EU Commissioner said today the European states’ unity to keep the achievements of the Iran nuclear deal has gained significant importance in the wake of the US withdrawal from the 2015 deal.

He further noted that the EU is resolved to keep the Iran nuclear deal and help European companies maintain their cooperation with the Islamic Republic.

“The US withdrawal from the JCPOA has created problems for the EU but the message of the bloc to Iran is that it is seeking to continue cooperation with Iran and preserve the nuclear deal,” he noted. 

For his part, Mr. Zarif underlined that after the US pullout from the Iran nuclear deal, the EU is expected to preserve the JCPOA’s achievements more than ever.

“Under the current circumstances, the EU’s political will is not enough to preserve the nuclear deal. The EU needs to take more practical strides and increase its investments in Iran if it is to continue its economic cooperation with the Islamic Republic,” he said.
