Iran deal outcome of collective global cooperation: Mogherini
The EU foreign policy chief say the strong nuclear deal struck in 2015 between Iran and the P5+1 states is the outcome of collective cooperation, emphasizing that the landmark accord does not just belong to the signatories but the entire global community.
Two years after the deal with Iran was signed, we see and we breathe a very different atmosphere in global affairs. It is not always easy to find or to build the same spirit of collective responsibility that made the Iran deal possible, Federica Mogheri said Wednesday.
The deal with Iran does not simply belong to the parties that worked on it and made it possible. For sure, it does not belong to one or two countries alone. It belongs to the entire international community. The deal has made the region and the whole world more secure, she added.
The top EU diplomat further emphasized the need for exercising patience, perseverance and stubbornness in efforts towards the achievement of win-win solutions to different international issues.
Mogherini described the current circumstances in the global affairs as times of confusion and said the existing hurdles could not be tackled by acting alone.
She, instead, underlined the EU's commitment to a collective cooperative approach to resolving the international issues, noting that such a mindset has been a main factor in the achievement of Iran's nuclear deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The top diplomat described the JCPOA as a strong deal made to stand the test of time, adding, In these two years, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has certified six times -- not once, six times � the full implementation of the deal's provisions.
Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany started implementing the JCPOA on January 16, 2016.
