Talks With E3 to Save JCPOA on Right Path

Talks with three European countries to save the nuclear deal are on the right path despite the US withdrawal, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said after meeting the European Union’s foreign policy chief on Tuesday.
Britain, France and Germany were to press Iran later on Tuesday to stay in the nuclear accord which US President Donald Trump abandoned last week and which has left Europe with few ways of keeping the accord’s benefits flowing to Tehran.
At a dinner with the four countries’ foreign ministers and the EU’s top diplomat, the European powers will say that they stick by the terms of the 2015 pact giving Iran sanctions relief in return for constraints on its nuclear work, Reuters reported.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who met Zarif on Tuesday morning, said it was up to the European powers “to preserve a deal we have achieved together. We will all save it together.”
Speaking to reporters after talks with Mogherini, Zarif struck an optimistic note.
