Mogherini meets US lawmakers
10 November, 2017
During her third visit for nine months in Washington last week, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini (pictured) said she has got clear indications by US lawmakers they plan to ensure the US complies with the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, despite US President Donald Trump’s misgivings about the pact. “The EU is completely united in supporting the deal and its full implementation; both at the level of foreign ministers and Heads of State and Government, we used very clear expressions and words. And again, we wish to see the US continuing its implementation of the deal in the future and we are ready to work with them in this regard,” Mogherini said at a press conference.
She told members of the Congress that the EU works to strengthen its defence in strong cooperation with NATO, especially on cyber and hybrid threats. Syria and sanctions against North Korea have also been discussed during the visit.
