US to lose trust of na­tions if walks away from Iran deal: Top EU diplo­mat

Daily Messenger - - International -

BRUS­SELS: The EU for­eign pol­icy chief says Wash­ing­ton’s pos­si­ble with­drawal from the Iran deal will send a mes­sage to the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity that the US is not trust­wor­thy when it comes to deal mak­ing. In a Wed­nes­day in­ter­view with PBS chan­nel, Fed­er­ica Mogherini high­lighted Iran’s full com­pli­ance with the 2015 deal, known as the Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion (JCPOA), and said, “We have the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity strongly be­hind the full im­ple­men­ta­tion of the deal.”

“Once that we have an agree­ment that is func­tion­ing, that is work­ing, that is de­liv­er­ing, the worst thing you can do is try­ing to dis­man­tle it, also be­cause you would show the way to oth­ers that mak­ing deals ac­tu­ally is not worth it, be­cause the mes­sage that Amer­ica would send to the rest of the world is that Amer­ica can­not be trusted upon,” she said.
