TEHRAN, July 28. /TASS/. The Iranian authorities will resume negotiations with the European Union on a broad range of issues, Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif told a press conference on Tuesday.
Consultations will focus on "energy, transport, trade, environment protection, observation of human rights and fight against drug trafficking," Zarif said.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program reached between P5+1 group (five permanent members of UN Security Council and Germany) and Iran paves a way for broad cooperation between Iran and other countries. Implementation of nuclear deal depends on the political will of the interested parties, she added.
On July 20, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted the resolution in support of the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program. According to the document, all international sanctions will be lifted from Iran in 10 years if Tehran fulfills all conditions agreed with P5+1 group of international mediators (five permanent members of UN Security Council and Germany) in Vienna.
The resolution also envisages easing sanctions against Iran after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) submits a report confirming Tehran’s compliance with the terms of the deal. The UN Security Council also reinforced the mechanism of returning all restrictions in case Iran violates the terms of the agreement.
