The European Union has donated €20 million to develop nuclear energy in Iran, the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. Behrouz Kamalvandi also told IRIB News on Tuesday that "this measure shows that the Europeans are welcome to cooperate with Iran on nuclear issues", AP reported. Kamalvandi's announcement came during a press conference on the sidelines of a meeting in Isfahan between Iran and the EU, titled "Second High-Level Seminar on International Nuclear Cooperation: Progress & Prospects." EU's senior diplomat, Helga Schmid, attended the gathering. The talks come after US President Donald Trump refused to recertify the 2015 landmark nuclear deal between Iran and world powers that curbed Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting international sanctions on Iran.
