WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on President Donald Trump's decision on the Iran nuclear deal.
The European Union foreign policy chief says the Iran nuclear agreement is a pillar of international security and she is calling on its signatories to continue to respect it.
The comments by Federica Mogherini came shortly after President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he was withdrawing the U.S. from the pact. Mogherini says, "The nuclear deal with Iran is crucial for the security of the region, of Europe and of the entire world."
Mogherini helped supervise the implementation of the 2015 accord. She says she is particularly worried by the announcement of new sanctions.
She says she will consult with Europe's partners about those sanctions suggested by Trump "to assess their implications."
Addressing Iran, Mogherini said: "Do not let anyone dismantle this agreement."
