TEHRAN – Euro­pean Com­mis­sioner for Agri­cul­ture and Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Phil Ho­gan re­it­er­at­ing that no Euro­pean coun­try is sup­posed to im­pose sanc­tions on Iran, said the Euro­pean Union in­tends to pur­sue the same style of lead­er­ship and co­op­er­a­tion that it has sought so far.

Speak­ing among re­porters on Sat­ur­day, Phil Ho­gan said “we were in fact one of the sig­na­to­ries of the JCPOA, and the Euro­pean Union has been fully ac­tive in this re­gard; the pres­ence of the Euro­pean Union’s se­nior of­fi­cial at the U.S. Congress last year was to de­fend Iran for its nu­clear ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Ho­gan added the two sides plan to ex­pand co­op­er­a­tion in the agri­cul­tural field, as we have spo­ken with Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture Mah­moud Ho­j­jati.

The EU is hope­ful and com­mit­ted to fur­ther re­move ob­sta­cles to pre­pare the way for the achieve­ment of goals, Ho­gan said.

The EU com­mis­sioner also said that the block, over the past year, has used op­por­tu­ni­ties cre­ated af­ter the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Iran nu­clear deal to achieve win-win goals.
