The European Union’s energy chief tried to reassure Iran on Saturday that the bloc remained committed to salvaging a nuclear deal with Tehran despite US President Donald Trump’s decision to exit the accord and reimpose sanctions.
The European Commissioner for Energy and Climate, Miguel Arias Canete, delivered the message during a visit to Tehran and said the 28-nation EU hoped to boost trade with Iran, Reuters reported.
“We have sent a message to our Iranian friends that as long as they are sticking to the (nuclear) agreement the Europeans will... fulfill their commitment. And they said the same thing on the other side,” Canete told a news conference.
“We will try to intensify our flows of trade that have been very positive for the Iranian economy.”
