India, EU Discuss JCPOAIndia, EU Discuss JCPOA

High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and India’s Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj reviewed developments related to the Iran nuclear deal on Friday. “Federica Mogherini and Minister Swaraj discussed in depth foreign policy and security cooperation, namely on counterterrorism, cybercrime, maritime security, as well as in the Indian Ocean,” according to the European External Action Service.  “They also addressed developments in their respective neighborhoods, such as the situation of the Rohingya, Afghanistan, the Maldives, the importance of preserving the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] with Iran, as well as the ongoing diplomatic work for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” Mogherini has repeatedly said that the EU wants to salvage the deal after the US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the international agreement in early May.
