European Union’s foreign policy chief assures 2015 JCPOA deal not over yet

(MENAFN) The European Union’s foreign policy head, Josep Borrell, once more has reassured that the torn 2015 Iran nuclear agreement is still going and could be regained.

In a meeting with the Chilean Columna Digital outlet, Borrell asserted that the agreement has come to a halt but it is not over yet.

“The agreement itself, which was that it [Iran] not become a nuclear power in exchange for allowing it to participate in international trade and, in particular, to export its oil, was already practically reconstructed,” the EU foreign policy head stated, as reported by Fars News.

“Trump destroyed it for free. Although it worked well, [the United States] withdrew from the agreement. Afterwards, the substantive agreement was practically finished, although it was not possible to reach the end afterwards,” he added.

Borrell then talked about Western allegations once more around Iran, stating that, “Later, Iran has entered into a dynamic that makes it very difficult to reach agreements of any kind. The repression of internal movements, in particular of women, the application of the death penalty, and the supply of arms to Russia - although they deny that they do so, there is plenty of evidence in this regard - have created an environment in which the nuclear agreement becomes more difficult.”
