EEAS SG Helga Schmid: ۱۰۰ companies are expected to enter into working negotiations w #Iran-ian parties. Given that over ۶۰٪ of European industries are active at this level (small & midsize), it's expected that there'll be a good framework for cooperation w direct support of #EU.

#Iran FM @JZarif: #EU's political support for #JCPOA is not enough & the union needs to take more practical steps. EU's commitment to implementing JCPOA is not consistent with likely refusal of large European companies to cooperate with Iran.
Although seems its too late but #EU is advised to take a glance to @CrisisGroup solutions one more time. its practical & pathfinder https://www.crisisgroup.org/middle-east-north-africa/gulf-and-arabian-peninsula/iran/۱۸۵-how-europe-can-save-iran-nuclear-deal …

EU FP. chief Mogherini: we're working to reassure the Iranian authorities that the #EU will continue to implement fully the #JCPOA as a strategic element of our security / we support the work of E۳ to address pres. Trump's concerns within the framework of the existing agreement
By new sanctions under the pretext of Iran's backing of #Syria, the #EU will damage opportunity for consultation with Tehran. Proud to say #Iran & allies haven’t been let #Daesh rule over Syria. West should appreciate Iran & @FedericaMog should continue playing constructive role.
#EU HRVP @FedericaMog: In preamble of #JCPOA, there's a reference, half of a sentence, that says something like that, this agreement could open the way or put the basis for a different kind of engagement, more constructive engagement in the region. ۱/۲
French president (in phone conversation w #Iran president): #EU & #France strongly support #JCPOA & are committed to its full implementation. We urge Iran to keep to JCPOA commitments in spite of the efforts by the #US.

#Iran FM: Europeans say the #JCPOA is a security achievement for them؛ it is natural that every country should invest & pay the price for its own security & that this (paying the price) needs be seen in the coming months.
#Iran President, in a phone call w German Chancellor on Thursday, described the package proposed by E۳ on #JCPOA as «disappointing»:The package lacked operational solution & specific method for cooperation, & featured just a set of general commitments like previous #EU statements
#Iran’s AEOI chief Salehi: I think #Trump is doing one thing very good that he is uniting the rest of the world & isolating himself … #EU, as a strategic partner of the #US is in confusion state. Europe doesn’t know what to do & they are at a crossroad.
#Iran VP & AEOI chief Salehi expresses doubt over the possibility of preserving the nuclear deal, saying that the proposals given by #EU to Iran are not enough to meet Iran’s expectations from the #JCPOA. #UNSG emphasized on preserving the deal.
As #Iran warns it’s preparing to boost enrichment capacity, EU/E۳, in a letter, seek broad US exemptions for #EU companies, saying that sancxns imperil their push to save #JCPOA. EU wants US not to threaten Europe’s security.French minister sees no indication for a positive reply
#Iran's leader: Some statements by European governments indicate that Iran needs to both endure sanctions & also stop its nuclear activities & continue [implementation of] these limitations. They need to know that this troubled dream will not come true.
Iran's foreign minister: European's words and actions don't match. we need more than political support. European big companies announcement to pull out of Iran projects, doesn't match with #EU words.

#Iran’s leader: Now it is said that we continue #JCPOA with E۳. I even don’t trust E۳. Receive practical guarantees from them. If you can, that’s fine. But if you cannot receive guarantee, it will not be possible to continue implementing #IranDeal.
#Iran's president @HassanRouhani signals that in case of #US withdrawal from the nuclear deal, Iran will continue implementation of #JCPOA minus US, provided that #EU, #Russia & #China guarantee that Iran's expectations from #IranDeal are met.
Simon Coveney FM of Ireland: nuclear deal #JCPOA is working & is separate from regional issues / we in the #EU strongly want to protect the deal and discussed whether or not the deal could survive if US no longer be part of it / NO decision to agree to expand sanctions today .
#EU's @FedericaMog: That sentence -here maybe I disclose a secret- was introduced on #Iran's request. Because Iranian leadership intended to use the agreement as a way to ask their own population a mandate to engage w the rest of the world, in a political battle inside #Iran. ۲/۲
#Iran FM @JZarif: I told @FedericaMog that the #EU needs to be more active re implementation of #JCPOA, & in its support for full implementation of the accord, #EU needs to move from statements to practical support.
