Zarif meets Mogherini on Iran Deal

Brussels,Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held a meeting with the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini in Brussels on Tuesday.

The two sides discussed the latest developments connected with Iran nuclear deal after US unilateral withdrawal from the agreement.

Zarif is slated to hold talks with the foreign ministers of France and Germany as well.

Zarif embarked on a visit to China on Saturday night which later took him to Moscow and Belgium.

When in Moscow, he discussed a variety of issues including recent move by the US President Donald Trump to withdraw from the JCPOA, US dangerous move to relocate its embassy to Quds with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.

Last Tuesday, US President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the international pact that was confirmed by the UNSC, which drew fierce criticism from the international community.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged French President Emanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to give guarantees that Iran's interests will be preserved and wanted the European Union, especially the three European signatories of Iran Deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, to announce, in a limited time, their stance on how to preserve and provide Iran's interests after the US' withdrawal from the deal.
