European Union foreign ministers on Thursday said a key agreement curbing Iran's nuclear ambitions must be preserved as U.S. President Donald Trump weighs whether to pull out of the pact.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the deal is "a crucial agreement that makes the world safer."

His remarks came ahead of talks in Brussels between ministers from the U.K., France and Germany and their Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said the EU wants to preserve the deal "because it is in our interest not to develop or to see that nuclear weapons are developed in Iran."

The EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini insisted the Iran deal "is working."

"The deal is working, it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check and under close surveillance," Mogherini said.

"It is essential that all parties should continue to abide by the deal," French Foreign Minister Yves Le Drian added, calling on the U.S. to respect it too.

Under the accord, Iran slowed its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of international economic sanctions. Trump has said he would consider scrapping the deal.
