The European Union and Iran have agreed to hold a high-level seminar on nuclear cooperation in Brussels in late November, European Commissioner for Energy Miguel Arias Canete said after talks with Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi on Saturday.

Axar.az reports quoting TASS.

As the European commissioner said in a statement circulated in Brussels, the parties agreed that the third high-level seminar on nuclear cooperation would be held in Brussels in late November 2018.

Canete and Salehi also confirmed the commitment of the EU and Iran to the Iranian nuclear deal.

On May 8, US President Donald Trump announced Washington’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. According to Trump, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) left the door open for Iran to circumvent restrictions and develop a nuclear bomb. The US president said that old sanctions would be restored and new ones would be introduced in case Tehran attempted to pursue its nuclear ambitions. At the same time, Trump called for making a new agreement. However, Trump actually advanced unfulfillable conditions for Tehran.

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued a joint statement calling on all other parties to the JCPOA to stay committed to their liabilities under it.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated that the European Union should guarantee Iran the observance of its interests under the nuclear deal to keep the agreement in force.

At the same time, Iran reiterated its commitment to the deal, saying Teheran will continue to implement its liabilities. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called the US withdrawal from the JCPOA a violation of the UN Security Council resolution and noted that Russia would seek to keep the agreement in force, despite Washington’s plans to resume the sanctions regime against Tehran.
