The Iran deal "is not a bilateral agreement, it does not belong to any single country and it is not up to any single country to terminate it," said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini on 13 October following the publication of the US White House's New Strategy on Iran. "It is a robust deal" that "is working and delivering," said Mogherini. "We cannot afford to dismantle it," the High Representative added.
Iran is fully implementing the agreement, as confirmed by the International Energy Agency. "There have been no violations of any of the commitments included in the agreement," said Mogherini. "The deal has prevented,continues to prevent, and will continue to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons."
The European Union , together with the rest of the international community, continues to fully support the Iran nuclear deal, and the full and strict implementation of all its provisions by all parties, stated the EU High Representative.
