Belgium: Iran talks approach to be used for Middle East peace process - Mogherini

Belgium, Brussels
July 20, 2015 at 20:38 GMT +00:00 · Published

High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini hailed a "positive week" in foreign policy and Europe regarding the Iran nuclear deal, in an address to press ahead of the Foreign Affairs Council meeting in Brussels on Monday.

Mogherini is now preparing to utilise "diplomacy and perseverance," which was successful with brokering an agreement on Tehran's nuclear programme, for "working on improvements on the ground especially in Gaza, on the West Bank and Jerusalem," in an effort to restart talks between Israeli and Palestinian authorities.

Twenty-eight EU Foreign Ministers are meeting in Brussels on Monday, with the long-standing diplomatic deadlock between Israel and Palestinian Authority on the agenda. Fernando Gentilini, the newly appointed EU Special Representative for the Middle East peace process, will also be present.

Mogherini's comments follow a deal being reached between the P5+1 group and Iran on July 14. Representatives from Iran, Russia, Germany, France, UK, US and China, were locked in negotiations for 17 days, extending a self-imposed deadline three times during that period.
