The European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said on Friday she was reassured during meetings with US President Donald Trump's administration that it was committed to the full implementation of the Iran nuclear deal.

In her first visit to Washington since Trump took power, Mogherini came to present the European Union as a valuable friend to the US with common priorities, Reuters reported.

Mogherini, who met this week with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Trump's advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner and members of US Congress, said her main intention in Washington was to discuss the nuclear accord, which granted Iran sanctions relief in return for curbs on its nuclear program. Her visit suggests concerns among European and other countries, including Russia and China, that the Trump administration may withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal.

"I was reassured by what I heard in the meetings on the intention to stick to the full implementation of the agreement," Mogherini told reporters.
