The discussion will focus on, among others, how to maintain economic relations and effective banking transactions with Iran in the context of renewed U.S sanctions, according to Mogherini.
“We are determined to ensure that the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) stays in place. We know it’s a difficult task but we are determined to do that,” Mogherini said, adding to which she said, “We’ve started to work to put in place measures that help ensuring that this happens.”
She went on saying that similar willingness has been expressed by the European and Iranian sides.
She proclaimed that she will brief leaders of EU members states on Wednesday in Sofia, Bulgaria, which is about to host the EU-Western Balkans summit.
