The representative of the European diplomacy Federica Mogherini, hammered, Monday, March 19, that the sanctions against Iran (to satisfy Donald Trump who criticizes the nuclear agreement, Ed), are not on the agenda of the meeting of heads of European Union (EU) diplomacy in Brussels.

“The ministerial meeting will look at the strict implementation of the Global Plan of Joint Action and the implementation of the nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the major powers,” added the EU’s chief diplomat.

While in Brussels, Europeans repeat their support for the nuclear agreement, the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jean-Yves Le Drian, works new: just three weeks after his mission to Iran where he encountered Tehran authorities rejected the idea of ​​a renegotiation of Iranian ballistic capabilities, the French high diplomat asked that the European debates on the Iranian nuclear include the ballistic program and what he qualifies as “hegemonic inclinations” of Iran in the region.

Mr Le Drian resumed his hostile speech before the Brussels meeting, calling Iran’s role in the region suspect.

Le Drian’s accusations coincide with the baseless allegations of Saudi coalition spokesman Turki Al-Maliki about Iran.

On the threshold of the fourth anniversary of Saudi’s deadly military intervention against Yemen, and in a rare public appearance, Colonel Turki Al-Maliki attempted to justify the defeat of Riyadh in Yemen by claiming to have new evidence concerning the alleged “Iranian missile traffic” to Ansrallah.
