No EU Countries Supposed to Boycott Iran
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.
