EU's Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini said on Monday that the European Union is determined to save the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA] reached between Iran and G5+1 in 2015.
In further details, Mogherini said after the EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting in Brussels that 'nobody believes it is going to be an easy exercise, but we are determined to do it'.
Mogherini further stressed that the latest report of the International Atomic Energy Agency says that Iran continues to stay below the maximum level to which it can enrich uranium and appears to be fulfilling other obligations, AP reported.
Meanwhile, the EU's foreign ministers were seeking to protect the bloc's strategic and economic interests in Iran in the wake of the US withdrawal from the international nuclear deal.
The US pulled out of the pact earlier this month and wants to impose tough sanctions on Iran, while European powers and Tehran say they are committed to keep working together to save the deal.
