Iran's nuclear agreement was discussed at a meeting between European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in Brussels on Monday.  The two officials also exchanged views on the latest regional and international developments, the Middle East peace process, developments in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Lebanon as well as EU-Saudi Arabia ties and issues related to the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council.  The EU, China, Russia, and a number of other countries have repeatedly reaffirmed their support for the nuclear deal signed between Iran and world powers in 2015, which US President Donald Trump has rejected. Trump said on Friday he would extend a waiver on nuclear sanctions against Iran for the last time to give the United States and its European allies a final chance to amend the agreement, according to Reuters.
