Mogherini told what is the reason for the consideration of sanctions against Iran

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The proposals to consider new sanctions against Iran are not related to the nuclear deal, it is a question of the situation around Syria, Head of EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini said Monday.

She confirmed the EU’s full support for the implementation of the nuclear agreement with Iran, noting that the situation in Syria should be considered separately from issues within the framework of the agreement.

“As I said in the morning, today there were no plans for sanctions, some sanctions are already in place … But the proposals that come from a number of countries refer to the conflict in Syria, and not to the agreement on the nuclear program,” she said after the meeting of the heads EU MFA.
