Mogherini: JCPOA Benefits Iran’s Neighbors

European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said Iran's neighbors will benefit from the "win-win" nuclear agreement reached between the Islamic Republic and six global powers last July.
"The full integration of Iran in the international community and the global economy will benefit not just Iran but potentially all its neighbors, including Armenia," Mogherini said in an interview with Mediamax ahead of her planned visit to Armenia on Tuesday.
She noted that the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, will not only benefit Iran and P5+1 (the United States, France, Britain, China and Russia plus Germany) but the entire region and the whole world.
Iran and the six major powers started to implement the JCPOA on January 16.
After the pact went into effect, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the European Union, the UN Security Council and the US were lifted.
The nuclear agreement was signed on July 14, 2015, following two and a half years of intensive talks.
Mogherini emphasized that the accord was proof that the sides "truly reached a win-win solution."
"The deal has made the Middle East, the Caucuses and Central Asia a safer place and it can start to foster more positive regional dynamics," she said.
Mogherini added that she plans to pay a visit to Tehran together with a number of other European commissioners to exchange views with senior Iranian officials about mutual relations and the latest developments in the Middle East and the wider region.
On February 15, the top EU diplomat held talks with Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in the Belgian capital Brussels.
