UNITED NATIONS, September 21. /TASS/. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that there is no need to revise the Iranian nuclear deal
She was speaking after the ministerial meeting of the Six (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) and Iran that took place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
"There is no need to renegotiate parts of the agreement because the agreement is concerning a nuclear program and as such is delivering," she told reporters.
Commenting on the discussion, she noted that the meeting was honest and frank.
"We have all agreed that all sides are implementing so far the agreement," she said adding that the agreement had been eight times confirmed by the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency).
The possibility of the US withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program was not discussed at the meeting of the Six mediators (Russia, the UK, China, the US, France and Germany) and Iran on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Mogherini said.
Commenting on the possible withdrawal of the US from the deal, Mogherini stressed that these agreements were not signed with one country. "This deal belongs to the international community," she said.
The agreement on Iran’s nuclear program was reached between Iran and six international mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.
On January 16, 2016, the parties to the deal announced beginning of its implementation. Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange of abandonment of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.
Washington has repeatedly criticized the deal. Speaking at the session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, President Donald Trump called the agreement on Iran's nuclear program "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into." he said that Iran exports "violence, bloodshed and chaos.".
