Iran nuclear deal ‘needs to be preserved’: EU’s Mogherini

Brussels (AFP) – EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini insisted Wednesday that the current Iran nuclear deal was working and “needs to be preserved”, after US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron called for a new agreement with Tehran.

“On what can happen in the future we’ll see in the future, but there is one deal existing, it’s working, it needs to be preserved,” the former Italian foreign minister said as she arrived for a donor conference on Syria in Brussels.
