EU Foreign Ministers Discuss Iran in Brussels

EU Foreign Ministers Discuss Iran in Brussels EU Foreign Ministers Discuss Iran in Brussels

EU foreign ministers were scheduled to discuss the latest developments in efforts to safeguard the Iran nuclear deal during a meeting in Brussels, Belgium, on Monday. 
“Today’s agenda covers the entire world basically: from Venezuela to Iran, from the Western Balkans to our relations with the African Union,” EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said ahead of the meeting, according to the website of the European External Action Service. 
The meeting came as European signatories to Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, which curbed its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief, are struggling to convince the country to stay in the deal, which US President Donald Trump jettisoned in May.  
Washington has since intensified pressure on Tehran with the reimposition of a series of tough economic sanctions that bar imports of Iranian energy and prevent financial institutions from conducting transactions with its central bank.
