Mogherini Says Work Continues on EU System Bypassing US Sanctions Against Iran

Hunt meets Zarif as Trump berates UK for ties with Tehran

The visit, a first since Hunt took office, comes two weeks after US sanctions against Tehran snapped back, with President Trump repeatedly saying he was unhappy with the 2015 deal and demanding that Iran curbed its missile development program and stopped its involvement in Middle East conflicts, notably the Syrian war.

Jeremy Hunt will use a visit to Iran today to warn the hardline Islamic regime against using "innocent" British-Iranian dual citizens as political pawns. United Nations monitors say Iran still abides by the deal, in which it agreed to limit its uranium enrichment in return for the lifting of global sanctions.

Hunt's visit is the first by a Western foreign minister since the United States withdrew from the nuclear deal.

Britain and its European allies responded with dismay to United States president Donald Trump's decision in May to pull out of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that relieved sanctions on Tehran in return for an end to Iran's military nuclear ambitions.

"The Iran nuclear deal remains a vital component of stability in the Middle East by eliminating the threat of a nuclearised Iran".

"It needs 100% compliance though to survive".

According to IRNA, the chief Iranian and British diplomats also discussed the ongoing war in Yemen as well as a range of other security issues in the Middle East.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said on Monday that date of creation of the EU Special Purpose Vehicle on bypassing the USA sanctions on Iran was still unknown but the work was being carried out in a positive manner.

In the meantime, the Guardian reported that Hunt had an agenda to make a personal appeal for the release of the Iranian-British dual-national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe on humanitarian grounds.

On Yemen, Hunt was to stress concerns at reports that Iran has supplied ballistic missiles and weapons to the Huthi rebels, his ministry said.

"But we also need to see an end to destabilizing activity by Iran in the rest of the region if we are going to tackle the root causes of the challenges the region faces".

"I have just heard too many heartbreaking stories from families who have been forced to endure a awful separation".
