EU Closely Watching Vote

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the bloc is closely watching Iran’s presidential election, which was held Friday.
“On the elections in Iran, we obviously follow with a lot of attention,” Mogherini said at the press conference in Brussels on Thursday, according to the website of the European External Action Service.
On the impact of the vote on Iran-EU ties, she said, “What I can say is that we have worked with the Iranian authorities in these years in an intense manner on many different files. And in some cases we have some common ground and good cooperation, for instance on the implementation of the nuclear agreement.”
However, Mogherini said, “There are other fields where we do not see eye to eye but I have to say the channels have always been open.”
In addition, the top diplomat said, “I would not comment on potential results, but it is an election that we look at very closely … because Iran is an important player in the region.”
