Nuclear Deal of ‘Strategic Interest' to Europe Nuclear Deal of ‘Strategic Interest' to Europe

The European Union considers it vital to preserve the Iran nuclear deal in the face of the US aggressive stance, EU's top diplomat said, describing the landmark agreement as "a strategic interest" for the bloc.
"Europeans have always made it clear, the European Union has always made it clear, that for us keeping the agreement in place is vital. It's a strategic interest for the European Union and we will stick to it," EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told reporters before chairing a EU ministerial meeting in Luxembourg on Monday.

The deal placed time-bound restrictions on Tehran's nuclear activities, in return.
