European Union defends Iran nuclear deal: no new sanctions”

European Union foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini said that "this was not foreseen to be a decision today", adding that further consideration on how to deal with Iran's role in the Syrian conflict "will happen in the coming days or weeks".

Israel had previously accused the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad of allowing Iran to set up a complex at the T-4 base to supply arms to its Lebanese Shi'ite proxy Hezbollah. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, however, expressed frustration towards Tehran and worrisome towards its role in the region due to its ballistic missiles program. "And that is why, in particular, my French colleague and myself, but also the British colleague, have once again addressed the topic of sanctions".

Mogherini further pointed to the May 12 "deadline" and said, "We are doing all we can to work with our American friends to make sure that all parties stay fully committed to the full implementation of the agreement, as it is the case so far".

He also speculated that Saturday's attack was ruse by the USA "to create a rift among Iran, Russia and Turkey" and thereby wreck ongoing talks on Syria's political future sponsored by the three countries.

Since the JCPOA Implementation Day in January 2016, the IAEA has been monitoring Iran's compliance with its nuclear-related commitments under the nuclear deal and has consistently verified the Islamic Republic's compliance.

The sanctions, which consist of travel bans and asset freezes against 82 people and one entity, were first put in place in 2011. The information that Israel has released includes the formation of the Iranian forces and the types of aircraft they are using.
