Iran urges more support for nuclear deal from European Union

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has urged the European Union to further back the 2015 Iran’s international nuclear deal.

Speaking upon his arrival in the Italian capital of Rome, Zarif said he would reiterate, in his address to the Rome MED-Mediterranean Dialogues, that EU’s support for the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is appropriate but not sufficient. EU should take more practical measures in this regard.
