Q: How are you doing it on Iran?

On Iran, you might have seen a joint statement that we have issued with the foreign ministers of France, Germany and the UK. There is a lot of concern from my side personally also on these developments. We remain fully committed to the full implementation of the JCPOA, of the nuclear deal. It's a matter of security for us and for the entire world. The European Union investment in nonproliferation continues to be a top priority for us. So far we have seen Iran fully compliant with all its nuclear related commitments under the nuclear deal. The IAEA will continue to monitor these nuclear related commitments' implementation and we will continue to see the compliance of Iran to its commitments to the JCPOA through the lenses of the assessments that the IAEA will continue to do. So I hope that our full commitment that is there, 100 percent, to preserve this important agreement will contribute to preserve it in the future.
