To avoid arms race, multilateral mechanisms such as JCPOA Needed: Mogherini

موگرینی

Tehran (ISNA) - Multilateral mechanisms such as the international nuclear deal with Iran are needed to avert a new arms race that would threaten international security, EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini said during a United Nations Security Council meeting.

"A new arms race, and a nuclear arms race in particular, can only make the world less secure, not more. Our collective security requires a solid multilateral architecture for non-proliferation and disarmament. This is why the EU has worked and will continue to work to preserve the nuclear deal with Iran," Mogherini said.

Mogherini noted that Iran's confirmed implementation of its commitments under the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), paved the way for the EU to lift economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic, according to Ssputnik.
