EU, Iran Hold High-Level Talks Amid Trump’s Threats

EU, Iran Hold High-Level Talks  Amid Trump’s Threats

TEHRAN - Iran and the EU have started their third round of high-level talks following the 2016 implementation of a nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and world countries. Helga Schmid, the EU’s deputy political director, met Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi in Tehran Monday to discuss issues of mutual interest, the state news agency IRNA  reported. Iran and the EU have already held two rounds of high-level negotiations in Tehran and Brussels, addressing economy and commerce, energy, environment, transportation, human rights, higher  education, research and technology, culture, and regional developments.
In her visit to Tehran, Schmid is accompanied by EU Special Representative for Human Rights Stavros Lambrinidis, the European Commission’s Director General for International Cooperation and Development Stefano Manservisi, and the Commission’s Director General for Energy Dominique Ristori.
As part of the third round, the two sides will attend a seminar titled, International Nuclear Cooperation: Expectations and Responsibilities, in Isfahan on Tuesday. The talks come amid efforts in the US Congress to undermine the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the international nuclear deal with Iran is officially called. (Presstv)
