EU assessing Iran's partial departure from nuclear deal

Tehran - The European Union is in an "assessment phase" after Iranian President Hassan Rowhani informed the other parties to the 2015 nuclear deal that Iran will partially pull out of the agreement, a senior EU official said on condition of anonymity.

"The contents of the messages sent have to be analysed," he noted, adding that consultations would take place in the coming days between Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China - the five powers that agreed the Iran deal alongside the United States.
EU foreign ministers will have a first opportunity to discuss the developments at regular talks in Brussels on Monday. Any EU decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran would have to be taken by all member states.
